text/plain 2.9k
The follow_link routine is called under the covers in most of the link methods, but the documentation does not indicate that the links in question will actually be traversed. This can be especially confusing in the case of $mech->link_content_*, where "link_content" could be misunderstood to be the innerHTML of the link, not the content of the resulting page. --- Orig-Test-WWW-Mechanize-1.12/Mechanize.pm Fri Jul 7 00:47:52 2006 +++ Test-WWW-Mechanize-1.12/Mechanize.pm Fri Jul 7 09:49:37 2006 @@ -449,7 +449,7 @@ =head2 $mech->links_ok( $links [, $desc ] ) -Check the current page for specified links and test for HTTP status +Follow specified links on the current page and test for HTTP status 200.
