I was aware of and decided to use these modules, but can't remember why anymore.

I think it had something to do with them also not being ok with javascript. But I may have been wrong about that, and will give it another shot.

Currently though, after perl -MCPAN -e 'install Mozilla::DOM' I'm getting

*** can not find package for any of (mozilla-xpcom >= 1.7, firefox-xpc +om >= 1.0, mozilla-firefox-xpcom >= 1.0) *** check that one of them is properly installed and available in PKG_ +CONFIG_PATH

apt-cache search isn't pulling these up on my ubuntu box. (and package management is completely &)#@ed on the SUSE 10.1 box I use at work.)

UPDATE: regarding the above, I guess I need to start at http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Build_Documentation

(It's just not in .deb form yet).

But I'm going home now, so perhaps to be continued.

    I just stumbled into the same situation yesterday ...
    Did you find a solution/work-around for this?


    Cheers,
