This looks very interesting. I would be happy if I could use such high level modules for web browsing.

However on my Win32 this is the said result of the build:
CPAN: CPAN::SQLite loaded ok (v0.199) Running install for module 'WWW::Mechanize' Running make for J/JE/JESSE/WWW-Mechanize-1.71.tar.gz CPAN: Digest::SHA loaded ok (v5.61) CPAN: Compress::Zlib loaded ok (v2.034) Checksum for C:\strawberry\cpan\sources\authors\id\J\JE\JESSE\WWW-Mech +anize-1.71.tar.gz ok CPAN: Archive::Tar loaded ok (v1.76) CPAN: File::Temp loaded ok (v0.22) CPAN: Parse::CPAN::Meta loaded ok (v1.4401) CPAN: CPAN::Meta loaded ok (v2.110930) CPAN: YAML loaded ok (v0.73) CPAN.pm: Going to build J/JE/JESSE/WWW-Mechanize-1.71.tar.gz WWW::Mechanize likes to have a lot of test modules for some of its tes +ts.

This is why I want to be able to achieve my goals with the simplest possible means without relying on high level modules.
