in reply to www::mechanize executable

Hello again monks!

I debugged as much as I could and found that the problem is my website type I believe. Because if I use www.google.com as my URL, my executable takes the information needed and saves it in the .txt file

Therefore do any of you have an idea why the website type makes a difference when my script is compressed to an .exe? (if i compress the script with the url=www.google.com, it works fine<\p>

    Have you checked with URLs that need HTTPS?

      Hello Corion, Yes I have noticed that the problem is only related to sites that have authentification. So for example hotmail.com (https://hotmail.com) will not work either. What I can't understand is that the script works fine whichever site I choose to parse.

      But when I package the script it only works with none secured websites. For example www.google.com will get parsed by the packaged script (.exe) I debugged and the process stops exactly when I call the https site i.e. at line:

      # Connect to the login page my $response = $bot->get( 'https://anyURLwithCredentials.com' );
