If you have a pdf of the data you need try pdftotext, which is a part of the xpdf library. It does a great job of extracting useful text from any pdf not based on a scan of an image. Then you'll have plain text to parse into fields. That would save the WWW::Mechanize learning curve and the javascript frustrations it raises. -- Hugh

Chatterbox?
[ambrus]: YourMother: my brother told me their cat wants to climb into the dishwasher if they leave the door open. Not when the dishwasher is started, but after it's done washing, because it's still warm and cats like warm.
[Your Mother]: Sure, sure. I had a cat as a kid who always slept on top of the fridge because of the heat dissipation up the back.
