If you'd done a
use Data::Dumper; die Dumper($content);
You'd see this:
<SCRIPT> if(self==top)top.location.replace("/?"+document.location) </SCRIPT>
Got it? :-)

So this would work:
#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use CGI qw/:standard/; use CGI::Carp qw(fatalsToBrowser); my $url = ""; my $query = "avril"; use WWW::Mechanize; my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new(agent=>"wonderbot"); $mech->get($url); print header,start_html("lyrics grabber"); $mech->submit_form( form_name => 'search', fields => { s => $query, l => 'song', # or 'artist' or 'album' or 'lyrics'. }, ); my $content = $mech->content; $content =~ s/self==top//; print $content;

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.
