in thread WWW::Mechanize can't GET; no helpful error message comes back

it worked for me doing this:
use WWW::Mechanize; my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new(); $mech->get ('http://google.com'); my $content = $mech->content; print $content;
I don't think it is necessary to put the 'or die "Can't create mech" part? Also,I have a brief tutorial that I have requested for comment using WWW::Mechanize that is in the meditations section
