Thanks for posting this. It was just right to get me on my way to becoming a first-time user of WWW::Mechanize.

I've put together a little script that will do some pre-fetching on a web-application. The app has a result-cache and will output a refresh whenever it encounters a cache-miss and does its calculations.

Instead of parsing the refresh-URLs or somesuch, I simply limited the number of refreshs the script will perform. Perhaps somemonk will find a useful snippet of code herein.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use WWW::Mechanize; my $maxrefreshs=5; my $debug=0; my @urls=( "http://www.whatever.xy/cgi-bin/", "http://www.whatever.xy/cgi-bin/ +=foo", "http://www.whatever.xy/cgi-bin/ +NODE=I1257", ); my $refreshs=0; my $mech= new WWW::Mechanize; foreach my $url (@urls){ while($refreshs < $maxrefreshs){ $mech->get($url); my $c=$mech->content; $debug and print $c; if($c =~/<meta\s+http-equiv="refresh"\s+content="\d+;\s*url=([^" +]*)"/mi){ $url=($1 or $url); ++$refreshs; }else{ last; } } }

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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 janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
