in thread I want to be a perl web browser -- what are my best options?

Greetings zentara, and thank you for your reply.
I see quite a few recomendations for WWW::Mechanize. To tell you the truth
after posting this question, I went back to work on an old project "docperl",
that predates that fancy web based version jon allen whipped up. Frankly,
I like mine better, as it gropes your own server for any/all the modules you already
have installed, and lists them, as well as producing the pod for viewing. I decided
it warranted being made public, so I needed to bring it's formatting out of the
'90's -- can you say Frames/Framesets? :P. Anyway, point being, while using it, I
discovered I had LWP installed, as a prerequisite for another module I had
installed. So read up on it, and had figured it to be adequate enough to fulfill my
needs. But now back here to catch up on "Seekers of Perl Wisdom" posts, you, and
others in this thread, have really piqued my interest in WWW::Mechanize. After
glossing over the related link you posted. I'd have to agree, it looks pretty
nice -- Thanks! :)

"Perl Web Browser using Gtk2 and WebKit"
Funny, I just happen to already have both of those installed. I was hoping to get
some time to explore all that Gtk2 had to offer, so when I noticed it, I
decided it was a "must have". I'll definitely have a look at that. But alas,
I'm going to need to get up to speed on WWW::Mechanize. Once I build the
necessary script(s) || module(s). I'll try and expand on it with the Gtk2
interface/extension.

Thanks again, to you, and everyone else, who have taken the time to respond!
I'll post back to this thread with anything "noteworthy". :)

use perl::always;
my $perl_version = "5.12.4";
print $perl_version;
