You're probably going to get much better responses if you show the Perl code you tried, not just the HTML you're trying to work with.

Revolution. Today, 3 O'Clock. Meet behind the monkey bars.

I would love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code

    Sorry, the javascript comes later (after I click that link, I get a javascript table). I cannot find the link, even by viewing the source code then by calling it by name. Here is the code I am using:
    my $agent = WWW::Mechanize->new(autocheck=>1, agent=> 'Mozilla/5.0 (Wi +ndows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/20080404 Firefox/ +', requests_redirectable => [ 'GET', 'HEAD', 'POST' ]); my $response = $agent->get($url2); $response = $agent->get($url); my $form = HTML::Form->parse($response->{_content}, $response->base()) +; $form->param("username", "usrname"); $form->param("password", "pass"); $response = $agent->request($form->click); $response->{_content} =~ /(https:\/\/\S+)"/ or die; $url = $1; $response = $agent->get($url); print $response->decoded_content; $url = ''; #Note: This link is in the form of + /abc/words/main/ and although it goes to whe +n mousing over the link in firefox it shows only the /abc/etc. part $response = $agent->get($url); #code fails at this point, response is a website-generated error #$response = $agent->click("URL"); $response = $agent->reload;
    Please note I am using made up site names since the actual name of the site cannot be disclosed.
