in thread Suggest a suitable module?

The OP is asking for a recommendation for a module, so he could start working on code, asking him to "show some code" is like asking an architect that doesn't know whether he should use bricks or wood to first show some walls.

as for a solution, I suggest going through the answers here: How do I perform web automation with sites that use Javascript?

"Principle of Least Astonishment: Any language that doesn’t occasionally surprise the novice will pay for it by continually surprising the expert..

    The OP did ask about a problem with code he has in addition to asking for recommendation.
    I have to assume this has something to do with the fact that Win32::IE:Mech is using a browser, instead of making a more direct request to the server? Do you have other ideas of reasons this could happen? Can you think of any ways to make the script access the documents I need?
    So he has actual code he needs to share :)

[hippo]: Make it an option?
[Corion]: hippo: Yes, but I'm not sure that it's even worth the effort of implementing it at all...
[Corion]: You'll only ever need that option if you have a long-running query whose results are not cached by your DB already, and in those cases I presume that the programmer will want to maintain the temporary tables themselves - I wouldn't know when to drop ...
[Corion]: ... the temporary tables, and also don't have a good idea on how to create unique table names for them
[hippo]: OIC. In that case leave it out but invite feature requests and see if any of the users suggest it. :-)
[Corion]: Talking about this makes me realize that it's likely only a half useful idea. But it still would be convenient to have as an option...
[Corion]: hippo: Hmmm - yeah, I could document it and wait for code implementing that option to show up ;-D
