in reply to Scraping AJAX?

When you hit the url for Dojo Demo the page you hit is the html page.

Once the page is loaded a call goes to url '' to pull the JSON data.

my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new();<br> $mech->get(' +d/demo/hof-batting.json');<br>

To extract data from content there are alternatives:
1. Using simple regular expression you can pull the required data.

2. Convert JSON to array of hashes and pull the required data.

Let me know if it helps.
