in reply to Re: Protocol scheme 'http' is not supported
in thread Protocol scheme 'http' is not supported

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately I get the same results...

$ perl -e 'use WWW::Mechanize; my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new; my $hro= $mech->get(q{http://www.perlmonks.com/}); print $hro->content'

Error GETing http://www.perlmonks.com/: Protocol scheme 'http' is not supported at -e line 1.

However, oddly enough if I do the same command with sudo I get the following:

$ sudo perl -e 'use WWW::Mechanize; my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new; my $hro= $mech->get(q{http://www.perlmonks.com/}); print $hro->content'

HTML::Parser object version 3.69 does not match bootstrap parameter 3.55 at /usr/lib64/perl5/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/XSLoader.pm line 94.

So I checked HTML::Parser and the rest and found:

$ sudo perl -MCPAN -e shell

cpan shell -- CPAN exploration and modules installation (v1.9800) Ente +r 'h' for help. cpan[1]> install HTML::Parser HTML::Parser is up to date (3.69). cpan[2]> install XSLoader XSLoader is up to date (0.15). cpan[3]> install HTML::Entities HTML::Entities is up to date (3.69). cpan[4]> install HTML::TokeParser HTML::TokeParser is up to date (3.69). cpan[5]> install WWW::Mechanize WWW::Mechanize is up to date (1.72).

And then looking at my @INC and doing some find'ing I'm seeing:

$ perl -e 'print join("\n",@INC);' /usr/lib64/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib64/perl5/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8 . $ $ $ sudo find /usr -name Mechanize.pm -exec ls -l {} \; -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 79472 Feb 2 16:38 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8 +.8/WWW/Mechanize.pm $ $ $ sudo find /usr -name Parser.pm -exec ls -l {} \; -r--r--r-- 1 root root 39789 Oct 15 2011 /usr/lib64/perl5/site_perl/5 +.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/HTML/Parser.pm -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 39509 Jul 10 2006 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl +/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/HTML/Parser.pm -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 27103 Aug 18 2003 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl +/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/XML/Parser.pm -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 64063 Dec 16 2011 /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/Pod/Par +ser.pm -r--r--r-- 1 root root 51259 Feb 20 2011 /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/TAP/Par +ser.pm $ $ $ sudo find /usr -name TokeParser.pm -exec ls -l {} \; -r--r--r-- 1 root root 10104 Oct 15 2011 /usr/lib64/perl5/site_perl/5 +.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/HTML/TokeParser.pm -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 10134 Apr 26 2006 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl +/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/HTML/TokeParser.pm $

Does any of that give a clue as to what's going on here...?

    With all the same versions you show above and in your OP, I cannot reproduce your problem. I have a newer version of Perl than you and I'm on a different architecture:

    $ perl -V Summary of my perl5 (revision 5 version 14 subversion 2) configuration +: Platform: osname=darwin, osvers=11.3.0, archname=darwin-thread-multi-2level uname='darwin ganymede 11.3.0 darwin kernel version 11.3.0: thu ja +n 12 18:47:41 pst 2012; root:xnu-1699.24.23~1release_x86_64 x86_64 '

    I noticed a discrepancy between versions for HTML::Parser. When you used sudo (above), 3.69 was returned without error:

    $ sudo perl -MCPAN -e shell ... HTML::Parser is up to date (3.69).

    without sudo (below), 3.55 was returned with an error:

    $ perl -MDevel::Modlist -MWWW::Mechanize -e 1 HTML::Parser object version 3.55 does not match bootstrap parameter 3. +69 ...

    This sounds like two separate installations of Perl that are not in sync. I see you've added perl -V output below; what does sudo perl -V produce?

    -- Ken

      Thanks for looking - obviously my eyes are missing something. I did the following but came up empty...
      $ sudo perl -V > sudoV.txt $ perl -V > V.txt $ diff V.txt sudoV.txt $
      but here's the sudo perl -V output:

        Hi,

        It does actually look like you have two perls installed.

        Look at your whereis output, /usr/bin/perl vs /usr/local/bin/perl

        You can verify this further by doing /usr/bin/perl -V and /usr/local/bin/perl -V

        I had a similar problem after a release-upgrade on my ubuntu-server.
        Unfortunately my only solution was to reinstall the system.

        Best regards,
        Jimmy
