hello Marto hello Marshall,

many thanks for the hints. I am going to make some tests with Mechanize! I make use of Mechanize instead of LWP!!

by the way:... i can read on the CPAN:
Features include:

* All HTTP methods
* High-level hyperlink and HTML form support, without having to parse HTML yourself
* SSL support
* Automatic cookies
* Custom HTTP headers

Mech supports performing a sequence of page fetches including following links and submitting forms. Each fetched page is parsed and its links and forms are extracted. A link or a form can be selected, form fields can be filled and the next page can be fetched. Mech also stores a history of the URLs you've visited, which can be queried and revisited. (end of citation)

Well - Does this mean that id do not have to do Parsing of a result-page with use HTML::TokeParser!? in other words: in the feature-list i can read: "High-level hyperlink and HTML form support, without having to parse HTML yourself" - unbelieveable!!!! Well i cannot believe this! Does this mean that i do not have to parse the fetched HTML-Pages?

Can i get the data-set of each of the 5000 Pages with Mechanize!?

Well i have to make some tests! And perhaps someone can set me straight here!!

BTW: You Marshall are right: this is a "very huge government website that performs very well." I do not think that i run into any troubles....

after the first trials i come back and report all my findings.

untill soon!!

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.
