       WWW::Mechanize::Cookbook - Recipes for using WWW::Mechanize


       First, please note that many of these are possible just using LWP::UserAgent.  Since
       "WWW::Mechanize" is a subclass of LWP::UserAgent, whatever works on "LWP::UserAgent"
       should work on "WWW::Mechanize".  See the lwpcook man page included with the libwww-perl


   Launch the WWW::Mechanize browser
           use WWW::Mechanize;

           my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new( autocheck => 1 );

       The "autocheck => 1" tells Mechanize to die if any IO fails, so you don't have to manually
       check.  It's easier that way.  If you want to do your own error checking, leave it out.

   Fetch a page
           $mech->get( "" );
           print $mech->content;

       "$mech->content" contains the raw HTML from the web page.  It is not parsed or handled in
       any way, at least through the "content" method.

   Fetch a page into a file
       Sometimes you want to dump your results directly into a file.  For example, there's no
       reason to read a JPEG into memory if you're only going to write it out immediately.  This
       can also help with memory issues on large files.

           $mech->get( "",
                       ":content_file" => "stable.tar.gz" );

   Fetch a password-protected page
       Generally, just call "credentials" before fetching the page.

           $mech->credentials( 'admin' => 'password' );
           $mech->get( '' );
           print $mech->content();


   Find all image links
       Find all links that point to a JPEG, GIF or PNG.

           my @links = $mech->find_all_links(
               tag => "a", url_regex => qr/\.(jpe?g|gif|png)$/i );

   Find all download links
       Find all links that have the word "download" in them.

           my @links = $mech->find_all_links(
               tag => "a", text_regex => qr/\bdownload\b/i );


   Check all pages on a web site
       Use Abe Timmerman's WWW::CheckSite <>
