in reply to RFC: WWW::Mechanize Basics., Tutorial (In progress)

Mech will die on errors (read the docs on changing that, and under what conditions it doesn't do that), so in the default mode, you don't need to test for $mech->success(). But you do need to eval operations that you don't want to die.

Also, I have never used the back() method, so to avoid memory issues, I always set the stack_depth option to zero. It's a good idea to set it to something, as the default is infinity.
