... And suggesting an alternative would not be wrong either.
Moreover,Win32::IE::Mechanize is just Like "the mech" but with IE as user-agent. Period...

If you tell me, I'll forget.
If you show me, I'll remember.
if you involve me, I'll understand.

    But you didn't actually suggest it as an alternative :)

    Mechanize doesn't support javascript, while iexplore does support javascript -- pretty much the only reason folks use iexplore when they can

      "...But you didn't actually suggest it as an alternative :).."
      Maybe you need re-read my Original Post, where I stated it clearly that Using your OP, I don't have Win32::IE::Mechanize, installed so I used WWW::Mechanize.
      Infact, I started answering by saying "Why not use ..." Please, how more suggestive can I be?

      "Mechanize doesn't support javascript,.."
      That is an open secret

      "..while iexplore does support javascript.." So, do WWW::Mechanize::Firefox. There always an alternate.
      Moreover, the OP didn't say he MUST use Win32::IE::Mechanize. Did he/she? :)

      if you involve me, I'll understand.

        Q: How do i sharpen this here knife?

        NA: Why don't you use a wooden handle? I don't have your knife, so I just buy a new knife. Look, its sharp....

        You start off with open pragma noise -- nothing in OPs program dealing with io layers needed fixing or improving

        Then you mention how you used some other module the question is not about -- wonderful, but who asked about that? where does the OP says he is looking for alternatives?
