in reply to www::mechanize google search

Like most other Google services, I'm pretty sure they don't give you permission to scrape info from their HTML pages. Here are the terms of use.

Google provides a Google Maps "mashup" (Javascript) API which is quite easy to integrate with. You'll need to sign up for a (free) license key.

The easiest way I can think to integrate the Maps API with perl is to run it in a locally served (say with HTTP::Daemon) web-page via Mozilla::Mechanize. You can then add AJAX (XMLHttpRequest) calls to your page to pass info back to your perl code.
