Web Spidering Ajax Sitesby awohld (Hermit)
|on Sep 14, 2007 at 02:11 UTC ( #638942=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml )||Need Help??|
awohld has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm looking to create a webspider that submits and gets back data from an Ajax enabled website. I'd like it to run 100% out of my Perl script using 100% Perl.
Is this possible? If so can you give me some hints on how it's done?
I saw Selenium demonstrated at YPAC::2006::NA and it can do the job. I'd like solution to be a UNIX only command line version using 100% perl if possible. My server won't have GNOME or similar installed.
Any direction on this would be greatly appreciated.
