I've been reading the docs and examples and faq about www::mechanize, but I
can't get past the login screen of the site I'm trying to access.

use WWW::Mechanize;
use Data::Dumper;
my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new();
my $url = 'https://lmx.leads360.com/web/Login.aspx';
$mech->get( $url );
$mech->credentials( 'jay, 'mypass' );
$mech->set_visible( 'jay', 'mypass' );
print $mech->content( format => 'text' );
Is it because the page has so much javascript?  It seems like the above
should work.

Do you see a blatant error?  if so will you point me at it?
