Did you run it properly? Windows XP, Strawberry Perl 5.12:

C:\>perl opt.pl --library=foo foo 1

[ambrus]: marto: no, not that way. if you just want to test for an existing id attribute, then write *[@id] , or you can match a regexp to the value of that attribute like *[@id=~/something/ ]
[marto]: ambrus, thanks I ended up going with '//*[starts- with(@id, "thread_")]...
[ambrus]: Sometimes it's easier to just match elements in ways other than xpath, like directly with perl code.
[marto]: this is a cheap hack, a script that doesn't need to run for long, using WWW::Mechanize:: Firefox to drive some awful interface.
[marto]: if it were anything more serious I'd spend more time looking into it properly :P
