NAME ^

WWW::Mechanize::DecodedContent - decode Mech content using its HTTP response encoding

SYNOPSIS ^

  use WWW::Mechanize;
  use WWW::Mechanize::DecodedContent;

  my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new;
     $mech->get($url);

  my $content = $mech->decoded_content || $mech->content;

DESCRIPTION ^

WWW::Mechanize::DecodedContent is a plugin to add decoded_content utility method to WWW::Mechanize.

NOTE If you're using WWW::Mechanize 1.50 or later, just use $mech->content and it will return decoded content.

METHODS ^

res->encoding

Because it loads HTTP::Response::Encoding module, it automatically adds encoding method to HTTP::Response class.

  my $enc = $mech->res->encoding;

Note that $enc might be empty if HTTP response header doesn't contain valid charset attribute.

decoded_content
  my $content = $mech->decoded_content;

returns HTML as decoded using HTTP response encoding. Returns undef if encoding is not specified. In that case you might need to get the raw content using $mech->content, and decode it using the default encoding, which is likely to be iso-8859-1.
