in reply to I need to automate/scrape data from IE

I tried using LWP, but couldn't connect because of SSL issues.
Can you be a bit more specific? LWP ought to be able to process https requests.

Instead of screen scraping, you could also try to find out where the page gets its data from, and just go straight to the source.
