Do you just want to look at the new stuff DOM nodes created by the scripts or do you want to control the whole process with perl. If you just want to look (and mess about by hand) check out the firebug firefox extension.

If you want perl control, check out Mozilla::Mechanize::GUITester and/or Mozilla::Mechanize or WWW::Selenium. update2: Win32::IE::Mechanize

update: just to be clear: LWP does not support javascript at all, and as far as I know no-one is planning on adding javascript support. All options I linked drive conventional GUI browsers since that's a lot easier to build and support than creating your own compliant and effectively useful DOM/BOM with javascript support. I should know - I gave it a try once :-)

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.
