Most wise and virile Monks, please show me the error of my ways.

I'm having what I think is a problem with modules (not) being installed but I'm not finding the one that's actually causing me grief. I've got the following:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use diagnostics; use WWW::Mechanize; my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new; $mech->get(''); print $mech->content;

that generates the following:

Uncaught exception from user code: Error GETing Protocol scheme 'http' is not supported at ./ line 9. at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/WWW/ line 2751.

WWW::Mechanize::_die('Error ', 'GET', 'ing ', 'URI::http=SCALAR(0x10dbc80)', ': ', 'Protocol scheme \'http\' is not supported') called at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/WWW/ line 2738

WWW::Mechanize::get('WWW::Mechanize=HASH(0xed47d0)', '') called at ./ line 9

I'm "blessed" with using at Perl 5.8.8 on a RHEL 5.8 server and getting up to current isn't a healthy option at this time. As far as WWW::Mechanize I've got the following on the machine:

$ ls -l /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/WWW total 104 drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jul 23 12:56 Mechanize -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 79472 Feb 2 16:38 drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jul 23 12:47 RobotRules -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 11155 Feb 18 06:05 $ ls -l /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/LWP/Protocol/ -r--r--r-- 1 root root 13822 Feb 11 08:02 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8 +.8/LWP/Protocol/ $ sudo perl -MCPAN -e shell cpan shell -- CPAN exploration and modules installation (v1.9800) Enter 'h' for help. cpan[1]> +install WWW::Mechanize WWW::Mechanize is up to date (1.72). cpan[2]> install LWP::UserAgent LWP::UserAgent is up to date (6.04). cpan[3]> install LWP::Protocol LWP::Protocol is up to date (6.00). cpan[4]> install HTTP::Request HTTP::Request is up to date (6.00). cpan[5]> install HTTP::Response HTTP::Response is up to date (6.03).

I'm just not seeing what I'm missing in order to get just this little bit 'o code to run. Help me, Obi Perl - you're my only hope.
