in thread Parsing AJAX-based website

I am trying to parse a website and the site loads a basic page that I can get with mechanize-get($url). But the Tags and Page data that I want to get is not found content. I think its an ajax call. I do not know how to get my script to get the tags. When I look at google chrome(element inspect), ie(F12 key), mozilla firebug all of them show the tags that I am looking for. But how do I get to the tags. Help will be appreciated.

    Look at the Net tab in firebug or 'Network' tab on chrome and find all the requests going out.

    Identify the request you are interested in - find out how that part is constructed ( based on the AJAX code that is present ) and make that call.

    As a note some of the modules mentioned above do this for you.
