I'll give HTML::Parser a second look, thanks for the suggestion. How do you match something like //div[@id='blah']/p though, do you explicitly maintain state?

As for LWP vs Mech, LWP does work for my use case, I just prefer Mech for a few niceties like autocheck, auto-delegation of $mech->content() to $response->decoded_content(), cookie_jar defaulting to on, etc.
