Mechanize with AJAX

by zer (Deacon)
on Dec 27, 2007 at 09:21 UTC ( #659170=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

zer has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Ok this is one that is stumping me, and I am pretty sure there isn't a way to do it. However perl has always been about making the difficult things possible.

With a regular website you can parse through and interact with it very easily with WWW::Mechanize, however with all the hype around ajax these days, these websites become a lot more challenging to go through.

Is there anything out there as of yet which can achieve the results of WWW::Mechanize or close to it through ajax riddled forms?

Thank you

    You always (WebDeveloper extension for Firefox) can see what request is your browser sending to site (via AJAX) and after that make same request in your program (via WWW::Mechanize).

      I'll save the next person the google search and post the link for the WebDeveloper Addon.
