i am reading many html files locally using WWW::Mechanize and URI. 
the html files have no extention. however, WWW::Mechanize can't seem to recognize the file as
the followign code spits out the html source file instead of text only.
a file with ht[m|ml] extention works fine. anyway i can get around it without renaming all the
files (not that it is a big deal though, but i am wondering..)

use strict;
use warnings;
use URI::file;
use WWW::Mechanize;

my $m = WWW::Mechanize->new();
print $m->content(format => 'text');
