WWW::Mechanize::DecodedContent - decode Mech content using its HTTP response encoding
use WWW::Mechanize; use WWW::Mechanize::DecodedContent; my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new; $mech->get($url); my $content = $mech->decoded_content || $mech->content;
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.
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.
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.
