in reply to Send JSON data to Perl scalar

I would look at the HTTP requests that this page makes and replicate them using LWP::Simple and JSON::Any.

An alternative approach would be to use a module or program that understands Javascript and acts like a browser, for example WWW::Scripter or WWW::Mechanize::Firefox, and then read the information out of the resulting page.

    What if I don't print it to a webpage yet. Is there any way that I can just send the data directly to a Perl script?


      Neither LWP::Simple nor JSON::Any "print to a web page", so I'm not sure why you think that "printing to a web page" comes into play with the approaches I suggested. Maybe you want to read the documentation of JSON::Any or JSON::XS?
