WWW::Mechanize get($variable)

jonnyfolk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Having picked up the content of a web page in a previous subroutine I would like to do some work on it using Mechanize, however I can't see how to get the contents of the variable: $contains_html into Mechanize. I can easily print a temporary file and use the url to do this, but that seems a clumsy extra step to me.

Any suggestions?

[LanX]: no idea ... ask py monks! ;-p
[tye]: it turns out that this can be caused by almost anything going wrong. If you want to know what caused the problem, you have to try to load each app by-hand to see what problems it is having, because none of those will be logged.
[tye]: No, I write more Perl than py at work. But I have to deal with plenty of py things.
[tye]: py monks would just be offended.
[Corion]: ;)
[Corion]: Hi tye btw ;)
[Corion]: I found plenty of not chatty enough logs with Perl too ... I'm slowly coming to appreciate Log::Log4perl resp. our homegrown alternative
[tye]: my experience with python so far is more like finding a moderately useful error message is a shocking surprise.
