Another resource of possible interest is the O'Reilly book Web Client Programming with Perl, which (as I understand it) is no longer available in dead-tree format, but is available online as part of the O'Reilly Open Books Project. Perhaps a little dated, but still useful (at a minimum) for getting a basic grasp on what is occurring as a web client, as well as for several introductory examples of using the LWP module.

    That book has been, thankfully, pretty much fully replaced by Sean Burke's excellent Perl & LWP book.

    There's also the new Spidering Hacks which covers Mech quite well along with many, many, practical scraping bits.

    Sure they're not free, but they're damn cheap if you use Safari Online Books (they also have a free 2 week trial available).
