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.

[Corion]: Hmm - "trust" sounds interesting, but I have still to find whether I can restrict that on a per-DB level ;)
[Corion]: erix: Sure, but SQLite doesn't even need that :)
[hippo]: Corion: Yes, you can. It's all in the pg_hba.conf
[erix]: yeah, but there is a lot SQLite cannot do :)
[hippo]: Database is the 2nd column.
shmem .oO( docker. docker. docker? docker. docker! docker )
[shmem]: at least, some Ook.
[erix]: another simple Pg thing is to running a database off a tsv (alas, readonly)
