in thread LWP and Javascript


Thanks. This all looks like the kind of things I need to add to a general toolbox for making webpages jump through hoops, mostly for automating testing, and computer aided manual testing. The specific task I wanted to solve is counting sponsored links (ads) on a web page. I cannot see them in LWP, only the Ajax that goes and gets them.

For some reason, I have not even tried the mechanize modules. I guess I thought I was getting more control from LWP. I just heard about Selenium last week for the first time, so I will take a look at that too.

In regard to your note about LWP, that confirms the sense I had about it. So I know now not to bark up that tree anymore.
