Yes, Win32::IE::Mechanize does do Javascript. It behaves a little oddly: code like document.write(...); includes both the original Javascript, as the generated result, in the "source". So it can't be a true compatible replacement for WWW::Mechanize... Once you take that behaviour into account, it works out very well.

An obvious limitation is that it only works on Windows, and you need an install of MSIE. But, given the former, the latter comes as a given. ;-)

[atcroft]: PriNet: Those code bits worked for me, with test hashes, but I didn't test it with more than a few simple test cases. *shrug* Had hoped it would help, at least.
[PriNet]: i think i found the problem, the "source" array that sets the individual key values isn't being cleared, it's keeping the previous values...
[atcroft]: PriNet: You might consider posting a small, self-contained snippet of that segment of your code, and see if someone else has a better idea.....
[atcroft]: PriNet: Ahhh... interesting.
[PriNet]: small would be a problem *heh*... the program reads all the lines from a pdf and converts the individual colum data to a seperate key/value pair... that's where the "previous" array from the pdf is not being cleared properly before reading the next pdf
