But you didn't actually suggest it as an alternative :)

Mechanize doesn't support javascript, while iexplore does support javascript -- pretty much the only reason folks use iexplore when they can

    "...But you didn't actually suggest it as an alternative :).."
    Maybe you need re-read my Original Post, where I stated it clearly that Using your OP, I don't have Win32::IE::Mechanize, installed so I used WWW::Mechanize.
    Infact, I started answering by saying "Why not use ..." Please, how more suggestive can I be?

    "Mechanize doesn't support javascript,.."
    That is an open secret

    "..while iexplore does support javascript.." So, do WWW::Mechanize::Firefox. There always an alternate.
    Moreover, the OP didn't say he MUST use Win32::IE::Mechanize. Did he/she? :)

    If you tell me, I'll forget.
    If you show me, I'll remember.
    if you involve me, I'll understand.

      Q: How do i sharpen this here knife?

      NA: Why don't you use a wooden handle? I don't have your knife, so I just buy a new knife. Look, its sharp....

      You start off with open pragma noise -- nothing in OPs program dealing with io layers needed fixing or improving

      Then you mention how you used some other module the question is not about -- wonderful, but who asked about that? where does the OP says he is looking for alternatives?
