when this code comes across a page with this tag <form name="IM" id="imform" method="get" action="aim:goim" my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new(); $mech->timeout(10); $mech->get($url); if ( $mech->success ) { my %results = (); if ( $mech->is_html ) { $results{title} = $mech->title; $results{source} = $mech->content(); } return \%results; } else { log_info("failed: $url"); return undef; } Can't locate URI/ in @INC (@INC contains: /sw/lib/perl5 /sw/lib/perl5/darwin /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.8/darwin-2level /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.8 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/darwin-2level /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl .) at (eval 31) line 3.
