in reply to Reg Expression on Javascript?

JavaScript is interpreted and executed by your web browser.

When you use Perl to get the same page, you just get the text of the page - there is no provision to execute any JavaScript that the page might contain.

You noticed that print $content; does not show you the date and time, only the JavaScript that *would have* produced it, had it been executed. That's why you can't find it ... it's not there...
