#1: web page access tip

Posted on 2007-12-09 18:50:16 by Eric Krause

All,
I have seen a lot of questions on this forum for automating web page
accessing, some of which I've posted myself. I just wanted to share
something I found.

I was using WWW::Mechanize and it worked absolutely great, but I had
problems figuring out what objects were called. I viewed the page source
and it wasn't totally helpful. My problem was multiple forms in javascript.

Then I stumbled across the iMacros Firefox add-on. It filled in all the
missing pieces of my puzzle. I could record a macro and easily view all
the object names I had been looking for.

You can also script iMacros from perl, but that wasn't my goal, I was
just searching for object names. (no Tom, this isn't homework :-)

Just thought that might help someone else.

Cheers,
Eric

The FireDebug extension for FireFox is also useful for examining web
page sources
