in reply to Problem with www::mechanize Select.

Looks to me like the problem is that the web site is sending compressed results even when the request says that compressed results are not accepted. A quick search of WWW::Mechanize documentation turned up "We add a Referer header, as well as header to note that we can accept gzip encoded content, if Compress::Zlib is installed."

So it looks like you can fix your problem by installing the Compress::Zlib module.
