Subject: test for basic page fetch
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 254b
I'd like a method for testing basic fetching of a URL, like $mech->get_ok(). This is easy enough with ok(), but it feels odd to not have that. Ideally, it would also be great to allow checking for other status responses, like access denied or redirect.

So what would that call look like? $mech->get_ok( $url, "Got the home page" ); ? But what about the parms that I can pass to $mech->get()? For example, I can call $mech->get( $url, ":content_file"=>$tempfile ); How do I know if the parms are for get, or are a description of the test? I'd love this, too, but I don't have a clean way to do it yet. I welcome your ideas.
We now ahve get_ok.
