um, http::recorder is easier than live/headers. you use a browser to do what you want (js or no), and http::recorder records the conversation, which you duplicate using mechanize. Otherwise there really is no way without learning http/cgi....

    I worked with HTTP::Recorder and went through the browser. The code it gave me back was exactly what I'd written myself in mechanize, and didn't work. Can I read up on HTTP/CGI and figure out what's going on from live/headers? I guess that's my only option now...

    From the docs:
    WWW::Mechanize can't play back Javascript actions, and HTTP::Recorder doesn't record them.
