LWP (or WWW::Mechanize) would let you load Page B and automatically follow the HTTP redirects, with the final URL being available to you in the uri method.

Where things get tricky is if any of the pages handle redirects via meta refresh or JavaScript.

The former is pretty easy to code around, but the latter usually requires prior knowledge of what the JavaScript is/does so that you can explictly tailor your code to handle it (and then hope no one changes it).

If you do expect a lot of JavaScript redirects, a better alternative might be to use either Win32::IE::Mechanize or Mozilla::Mechanize, as both browsers have JavaScript engines and should be able to follow those redirects automatically (but I've used neither module, so can't confirm this).

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible editor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
