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.

[TStanley]: I'm sitting in the airport in Tampa, Florida at the moment, getting ready to head home.
[talexb]: TStanley I'm flying to Vegas in two weeks time. After that flights leaving Vegas and Phoenix are late at night .. I've been hearing that it gets so hot that the air isn't dense enough for planes to take off. Weird. Guess you won't have that problem.
