in reply to Negate link search in Mechanize

Why not just get all the links like so ...

... use WWW::Mechanize; my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new(); $mech->get( $url ); my @links = $mech->links();
... then iterate over @links. Something like ...
for my $l (@links) { next if $l->url() =~ /foo/; push ( @non_foo_links, $l ); ...
