in reply to Using Mechanize With Odd Query String

Your form key/value pairs need to be specified as Content:
$browser->post("$BASEURL?use-a", { 'target' => '195' } ); # now a hash +ref

The documentation for ->post mentions $field_name which may be confused as being a form key name. The $field_name => $value pairs actually get pushed onto the Header instead of the Content.

    Thank you. I did not understand the documentation even when I re-read it. Thank you for explaining it succinctly.

LanX wouldn't update system Perl!
[Discipulus]: prathap keerthipati might be it is better to install an alternative Perl instead and do not touch the system one
[LanX]: see perlbrew for alternative Perl installations
[marto]: unless you know exactly what you're doing an often saner option is to simply build another Perl rather than replace the system one
