I've used a regex as my refresh template is fixed and very, very simple. However, if yours isn't/aren't then you should replace the regex with a call to something like HTML::TokeParser.

This is actually built into WWW::Mechanize (well, LWP...) for you, so you can do something like:-

if ($mech->response and my $refresh = $mech->response->header('Refresh +')) { my($delay, $uri) = split /;url=/i, $refresh; $uri ||= $mech->uri; # No URL; reload current URL. sleep $delay; $mech->get($uri); }

$delay should probably be validated to protect against malformed META refresh tags, and there's a whole other headache about potential loops if you hack WWW::Mechanize to follow refreshes automatically.

Title:
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.
