How does one write a program to interact with a JavaScript-based web
page?  We have an intranet page written in JavaScript like the

    HTTP/1.1 200 OK
    Date: Fri, 31 Mar 2000 00:16:37 GMT
    Server: Microsoft-IIS/4.0
    Content-Type: text/html
    Client-Date: Fri, 31 Mar 2000 00:16:44 GMT
    Title: ARWeb 3.0.2
    <TITLE>ARWeb 3.0.2</TITLE>
    <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
    var CURRENT_PAGE = null;
    var PAGES = new makeObject();
    var PICKLIST_WIN=null;
    function loadPickList()
    	return PickListStr;


I couldn't find anything about JavaScript on CPAN.  I was told that
JavaScript is something quite different than Java.

As I've said at the meetings, I'm a complete newbie at web Perl
programming, so any help would be appreciated.
