You're interested in the contents, but you're looking at the carrier - what you need is HTTP::Request, probably:
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use HTTP::Request; my $host = 'what.ever.com'; my $uri = "http://$host/path/to/resource"; my $request = HTTP::Request->new(POST => $uri, [ Host => $host, 'User-Agent' => 'Mozilla whatever...', Accept => 'text/xml,application/xml,...', 'Accept-Language' => 'en-us,en;q=0.5', # you get the idea... ]); print {*STDOUT} $request->as_string(); __END__ poletti@PolettiX:~/sviluppo/perl$ perl zer.pl POST http://what.ever.com/path/to/resource Accept: text/xml,application/xml,... Accept-Language: en-us,en;q=0.5 Host: what.ever.com User-Agent: Mozilla whatever...
And yes, if you have a WWW::Mechanize (say $mech) object, you can then simply call:
my $response = $mech->request($request);
You have probably to work out if cookies are automatically inserted or not, and act consequently.
