Hi Monks, I am facing an issue with www::mechanize::firefox Click. I am clicking a button but it is hanging there. and it is not processing any next codes. Can you pls check the below codes pls,

use strict; use WWW::Mechanize::Firefox; my url= "**************************************"; my $mech = WWW::Mechanize::Firefox->new(timeout => 2 ); $mech->allow( javascript =>1); $mech->get($url); sleep(3); $mech->click({ xpath => '//span[@class="paginate_button"]' }, { xpath +=> '//*[contains(text(),"2")]' }); #print "First click ok" ; sleep(3); $mech->click({ xpath => '//span[@class="paginate_button"]' }, { xpath +=> '//*[contains(text(),"3")]' }); sleep(3);

Here it is hanging at the first click and not doing any next process. Here it stuck on $mech->click({ xpath => '//span[@class="paginate_button"]' }, { xpath =>  '//*[contains(text(),"2")]' }); and not coming out of that. I tried giving timeout also, but it is not taking. Is there any other way for this? The Url I tried on is

Thanks In advance Monks.

I just want the script to come out of that first click and do the rest process. Is there any other way to give timeout? I mean in www::Mechanize we can give like $mech->timeout(2); (but in www::mech::firefox I think we cant!)Thanks Monks.

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
