Ciao, Valerio

update: I think WWW::Mechanize is too powerful for my needs; I don't need an automated browser, only a way to retrieve nodes and possibly have a different cache policy for them. Does this satisfy your curiosity? :)

    LWP, URI, Cache::Cache, XML::Simple, HTML::TokeParser and HTML::TableExtract to interface to this site

    Have you looked at WWW::Mechanize and WWW::Mechanize::Cached? Are you doing something with your stuff that Mechanize isn't? I'm curious as to what it is, and what we can add to Mech.

    xoxo,

    That's fine. I'm just curious as to what's coming out of the parsing that you're doing that Mech wouldn't do. Also, WWW::Mechanize::Cached does all the caching for you. It uses Cache::Cache, just like you are.
