WWW::Mechanize-like package for Haskell
|Reported by:||nominolo@…||Owned by:||none|
Provide a framework that can serve as a basis for intelligent web agents / bots. This means it should provide means to simulate an interaction with a web site:
- retrieving web-sites, handling forwarding, cookies and similar user-agent features
- provide easy means to fill out forms or set up other kinds of requests
- query documents, e.g. by tag, by id, by class, etc.; search for contents
A lot of functionality might already be available through other libraries and just has to be put together in a nice way.
[Of course this library can be used for things like spam-Bots, but I think there are a lot of legitimate applications, too ;) ]
