WWW::Mechanize for page source

Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I am trying to use WWW::Mechanize to capture the source of the page after all javaScript have executed. content() captures only the code on the page load - before the javaScript executes.
How do I accomplish that?

My code:


<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <script src=""></script> <script src="test.js" type="text/javascript"></script> </head> <body> <p>Not loaded yet.</p> </body> </html>


$(document).ready(function () { $("p").text("The DOM is now loaded and can be manipulated."); });

What method can I use so my captured source has "The DOM is now loaded and can be manipulated." instead of "Not loaded yet."
