I am writing a script that scrapes certain webpage information.
Currently I have it working in WWW::MozEmbed but I would like to convert

How would I go about writing this up? I've spent all day/night reading
the docs and examples within contrib/ but most of it deals with
reformating url's and scripting within the browser and less of what's
outside the browser. How would I call elinks to run a script?
Thanks in advance.
