Greetings Monks,
I stumbled upon Selenium, a test tool for web applications. Aslo I found a CPAN module, WWW::Selenium, that acts as a perl driver for Selenium.

I have installed WWW::Selenium and while trying to execute the following sample code:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use warnings; use WWW::Selenium; use WWW::Selenium::Launcher::MacDefault; my $selenium = WWW::Selenium->new; $selenium->open( 'http://localhost/selenium/SeleneseRunner.html' ); $selenium->verify_title( 'Some title' ); $selenium->click_and_wait( 'link_id' ); $selenium->stop;
I get the following error:

Error fetching result: Timed out! at /Library/Perl/5.8.6/WWW/Selenium/ line 45 at /Library/Perl/5.8.6/WWW/ line 106

I have read a couple of threads on the mailing list, but could not figure out how to solve this. Pls help.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
