Subject: Feature suggest: Stringify WWW::Mechanize::Link to url_abs()
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 551b
Not a bug and maybe not even a good idea but I'm thowing it out there. If link objects stringified to their underlying URLs then more compact/idiomatic code can be written. Things like: for my $link ( grep /\.html$/, $mech->links() ) { # do something } Not a big deal, obviously, just something to consider which seems like it might make sense because the URI::URI objects stringify. Proposed/sample code (pretty much straight out of URI::WithBase): use overload '""' => "url_abs", fallback => 1; Thank you, Andy. You rock. -Ashley
Thanks, but I'm not going to do this. Overloading gives me the willies.
