New $mech->text method returns the text from your HTML page.  The
exact rendering of this text is simply removing all the HTML
tags, but this will change. It's pretty ugly.  If anyone wants to
work on a better-looking text dump, I'd love to see it.

Added mech-dump --text.

Improvements to the docs explaining explicitly about the subclassed
methods we inherit from LWP::UserAgent.  Thanks, Lyle Hopkins!

Parsing of forms has been delayed until they're actually needed.

between calls.

used.  Thanks for the catch, Gisle.

LWP::UserAgent do the work, and no longer requires

Added a new dump_headers() method to dump the HTTP response headers.

Added --headers flag to mech-dump to dump the HTTP response headers.

Now requires LWP version 5.829 because HTTP::Response has memory
cycle bugs.

Added a few notes to the FAQ, and fixed some incorrect docs.

1.55_01     Mon Jul  6 12:17:10 CDT 2009
This is mostly a bug fix release.  There will be a number of other

t/cookies.t should not hang on Windows any more.

META.yml has been updated so the links should be

Passing no_proxy would make LWP::UserAgent barf.  Thanks to Mike

Cookies test would fail under Windows.  Fixed, thanks to many people

$mech->submit_form() now can specify the form by ID using the form_id

The docs used to say that ->stack_depth(0) was an infinite stack
size.  This is wrong.  Zero will tell Mech not to keep any history.

The $mech->clone() method was not passing the cookie jar to its
clone properly.  Thanks to David Sainty.

The $mech->back() can fail if there's nothing on the stack to go
back to.  Thanks to Dave Page.

$mech->follow_link() did not complain if a link could not be found,
even with autocheck on.  Now it does.  Thanks, Flavio Poletti.

Added a $mech->form_id() method so you can look up forms by ID.

Added $mech->content_type(), because $mech->ct() is too cryptic.

1.51_02     Tue Nov 18 01:30:54 CST 2008
t/local/click_button.t is still failing its tests for calling ->click
on an HTML::Form object.  I suspect this is an LWP change, but I
haven't dug into it enough yet.

Fixed the bad credentials API that stomped on LWP::UserAgent's
credentials() method.  Thanks to Max Maschien and Matt Lawrence.

The $mech->links method now finds <link href="..."> links. Thanks

Makefile.PL explicitly requires Perl 5.8.0. has to be version 1.36 or else URIs don't get encoded

LWP has to be 5.819 or we have encoding problems.

1.51_01     Thu Nov  6 15:13:03 CST 2008
Page history is now working much better.  The $mech->back() method
should behave more like a browser now.  Most notably, it no longer
restores the cookie state, just like your browser doesn't restore
cookie state when you page back.  It also should use much less

1.50        Sun Sun Oct 26 22:42:46 CDT 2008
WWW::Mechanize now requires version 5.815 of LWP.  This in itself
may cause problems for you because of changes in how LWP does

1.49_01     Sat Sep 27 23:50:04 CDT 2008
The autocheck argument to the constructor is now ON by default,
unless WWW::Mechanize is being subclassed.  There are so many new
programmers whose ->get() calls fail unchecked that I'm now putting
on the seat belts for them.

I do believe we are on the way to having all the encoding problems
ironed out.  This version incorporates a patch from here:

and tests from Miyagawa's WWW::Mechanize::DecodedContent

to finally fix this.

You can now specify not to set up the proxy, if there is one.  The
proxy causes problems for Crypt::SSLeay.  For details see:

Fixed internal links.

Lots of refactoring based on Schwern's "Skimmable Code" talk.

Update p5-WWW-Mechanize from 1.30 to 1.34

1.34        Mon Dec 10 00:30:39 CST 2007
Many fixes to make the test suite more portable.

1.32        Tue Oct 30 12:02:17 CDT 2007
Added dump methods to mirror mech-dump:
* $mech->dump_images()
* $mech->dump_links()
* $mech->dump_forms()
* $mech->dump_all()

Sanity checks in the WWW::Mechanize::Image constructor.  Every Image
must have a "url" and "tag" field passed in to it.

1.31_02     Thu Oct 25 11:48:29 CDT 2007
Added class, class_regex, id and id_regex limiters to find_link()
and find_all_links().  Thanks to Adriano Ferreira.

1.31_01     Mon Sep 17 23:38:03 CDT 2007
Mech tests now pass even if your DNS server gives A records for
anything (like OpenDNS).  Thanks, Miyagawa!

Searching for the <base href> is now case-inensitive.  A better
solution would be to actually parse the HTML.

mech-dump now handles --user and --password arguments for sites
that require authentication.

1.30        Thu May 24 21:31:10 CDT 2007
*   Minor doc fixes.  Thanks David Steinbrunner.

1.29_01     Tue May 22 14:02:55 CDT 2007
Kevin Falcone and I ask for your assistance in figuring out how to
handle the warnings thrown by the tests, other than hiding them.

*   Overhauled how tainting was done.  Stole code directly from
*   Have LWP only handle decoding of Content-Encoding, not charset.

*   Fixed the docs for $mech->submit_form()'s with_fields arg.
    Thanks, Peteris Krumins.

1.26        Wed May 16 14:21:29 CDT 2007
*   Re-reversed the content decoding.  This is critical for reading from
    sites with gzip on the fly, like Wikipedia.
*   Content is now properly tainted.

*   mech-dump can now pass --agent and --agent-alias flags so you can
    fetch from sites like Wikipedia that block LWP user agents.

*   The mech-dump program is now always installed.  It no longer is
    presented as an option.

1.22        Fri Mar  2 00:05:57 CST 2007

Added new tests.

Added Perl::Critic changes and a perlcriticrc file.

1.21_04     Sat Oct  7 21:35:42 CDT 2006

*   $mech->content( type => 'text' ) was not freeing memory.  Thanks to
    Cat Okita for finding it.

*   Made the order of parms to $mech->content() not relevant.

1.21_03     Sat Oct  7 01:21:46 CDT 2006

*   The methods $mech->form() and $mech->follow() have been removed.
    They've been deprecated since 1.10, which was released in Feb 2005.

*   I'm trying to nail down what seems to be a memory leak on long-running
    Mech programs.  I'm stringifying URI::URL objects wherever I can.

*   No longer uses UNIVERSAL.

1.21_02     Wed Oct  4 13:14:30 CDT 2006


*   The $mech->stack_depth() setting had no way to say "don't cache any
    pages at all".  How silly!

    Now, if you set $mech->stack_depth(0), no history of pages will be kept.
    In the past, it would mean "Keep all pages."  This means that if you want
    to set it to keep all pages, set it to some ridiculously large number.

*   The docs previously refered to Compress::Gzip instead of Compress::Zlib.

1.21_01 Mon Sep 18 17:18:43 CDT 2006

*   If Compress::Zlib is installed, gzipped content is now
    accepted and transparently decoded. No additional syntax needed!
    This should save time and bandwidth in a number of cases.
    (Mark Stosberg)

*   Added a put() method.  It also calls a subfunction called
    _SUPER_put that will be removed once LWP::UserAgent supports put().

Update to 1.20:

        * Added new two-argument form of credentials() method.
          $mech->credentials($username, $password);
          That provides simpler visiting of password-protected
          resources in the vast majority of cases and still
          allows the other cases to be supported. (Peter Scott)

        [BUG FIXES]
        * autocheck no longer is triggered when informational
          responses are returned. (Mark Stosberg)

        * test suite no longer fails when Test::Warn is missing.
          (CPAN testers, Mark Stosberg)
        * Removed all the testing against live sites. The networking
          code is not actually in Mech anway, and they were prone to
          breaking, as the live sites changed. (Mark Stosberg)

1.19_02 Mon Aug  7 23:57:56 CDT 2006

        * Add new Do-What-I-Mean submit_form() option.
                with_fields => \%data
         That expresses that you want to select the first form contains all
         fields in \%data, and then submit the data to that form. See the docs
         for form_with_fields() and submit_form() for details.
         (Mark Stosberg, inspired by RT#6100)

        [BUG FIXES]
        * The behavior of clone() now copies over the cookie jar, which
          is probably what you expected it did in the first place.
          This fixes bug RT#13541 filed against Test::WWW::Mechanize,
          which was using clone() internally. (Mark Stosberg)

        * The correct URL is returned after redirecting. This a regression
          from 1.04 and was reported as RT#9059, RT#12882, and RT#12786.
          The documentation about this has also been clarified that we
          return a URI object, but that it stringifies to the URI itself.

        * Fixed a misleading parm in the constructor.
        * Document the return value of set_visible (RT#6071, MJD,
          Mark Stosberg)
        * Document that form_name and form_number return an HTML::Form
          object (Mark Stosberg)

        * Made lots of little cleanups based on Perl::Critic
        * Fix Taint-mode warnings with Perl 5.6.1 (RT#16945)

            * --local/nolocal turns on/off the local tests
            * --mech-dump/nomech-dump installs/doesn't the mech-dump program

        * Fixed some failures in tests.  Non-existent URLs now have a
          "." postpended to them, so if someone's got a search domain
          with a wildcard (i.e. it'll ignore that.  Also,
          Google's second link is now a https:// link, which some Mechs
          can't handle.  Added a 'url_regex' which now makes it look at
          the second non-https link.  Thanks to Pete Krawczyk.

Update to 1.16:

1.16    Fri Oct 28 17:34:20 CDT 2005
        * Sped up Mech significantly (~20% in some cases).  Images and
          links are extracted from the HTML, and objects are created,
          only when they're actually needed.  This will be a speedup for
          pages where you're only following links, or vice versa.

        * If you've been relying on the $mech->{images} and $mech->{links}
          fields being populated so that you can bypass the $mech->images()
          and $mech->links() accessors, your code will break.  That's OK,
          because you should have been using the accessors all along.

1.14    Tue Aug 30 17:17:40 CDT 2005
        * Added lots of new FAQs.  Thanks to Peter Stevens.

        * Now requires Test::LongString.  That's not too odious.

        * Tests now pass with the shuffling around that Google did.

1.13_01 Tue Apr 12 14:11:18 CDT 2005
        * Now dies if you call submit_form() with a non-existsing
          form_number or form_name.  Before, it would just warn.

        * Added an example of using credentials() in the cookbook.

        * WWW::Mechanize::Link now has support providing all the
          attributes of the link through a new attrs() method, which
          returns them as a hashref. This is a replacement for the
          alt() method, added in 1.05_01. It's not backwards
          compatible with that, but, hey, that's what developer
          releases are for. (RT#8092, Rob Casey and Mark Stosberg)

          value to prevent attacks, patch by Jan Pazdziora (RT #7843).

          test the return values.  The return value is now "1" on
          success instead of the undocumented behavior of returning
          a form value. (RT#6138, spotted by MJD, patched by Mark

        * Possible matching tags for the find_link() 'tag_regex'
          attribute are now documented. (RT#2989, by Mark Stosberg)

        * refactored find_link() to avoid use of eval(). This should
          improve performance a bit and avoid potential security
          issues. (Mark Stosberg)

          interface. The old one is still supported. Support for including
          an 'alt' attribute was added, which is useful for <area> links.

          is undef. (RT #6443)

          uploader programs to WWW::Mechanize::Examples.

Import p5-WWW-Mechanize from pkgsrc-wip.  Packaged by dieter Roelants.

"WWW::Mechanize", or Mech for short, helps you automate interaction
with a website. It 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.
