in reply to DIfference between LWP and WWW::Mechanize

www::mechanize is an excellent package, but I've never been able to get a version which passed the tests on the Windows or Linux boxes I've used. So I'll have to disagree with the comments that this should be a replacement for LWP::UserAgent. The fact that this package often (but not always) fails tests on certain platforms makes me reticent to require it for an application.

But, unfortunately I have not tested in non-unix machine.

    It's a dependency (HTTP::Server::Simple) that's failing. Mechanize only uses HSS for testing, and Mechanize isn't affected by whatever is causing the HSS test to fail. In other words, not a problem.
