Actually, there's no need to write your own parser to get at that URL: LWP::UserAgent, which WWW::Mechanize is an extension of, does it for you!

# UNTESTED; USE AT YOUR OWN PERIL :-) my $response = $mech->submit_form( form_name => 'loginForm', # ... ); # Follow HTTP or META refreshes. if (my $url = $response->header('Refresh')) { $url =~ s/^\d+;url=//i; $mech->get($url); }

There may even be way to get LWP::UA or WWW::Mech to automatically follow along, but I haven't delved into the documentation to see although I did stumble across a WWW::Mechanize wishlist item that you may want to keep your eye on.
