in reply to javascript interpreter in perl???

Note that an interpreter is not all you need to solve this problem. You need to have a DOM as well.

Depending on what you want to do this can be hard or easy.

    Can you please tell me how to get a DOM for working on the web page?? I tested the JE module and it was able to solve javascripts.. but I not sure how to test it connected with a web page.. i mean, the module was able to solve simple scripts like
    function xxx() { return 42; }
    but i do not know how to test it for scripts that access the DOM. for example. the script has statements like document.getElementByID etc. how do i create the handle of the retrieved web page as 'document'.. can u please suggest me on this..
      If you really want all of this to be in perl it is quite a hard problem requiring javascript and perl code.

      You might want to look at HTML-DOM, but there is still a lot of glue needed to tie it all together.
