Hi -

I'm having trouble installing WWW::Mechanize from the CPAN shell.
Here's what I keep getting:

cpan> install WWW::Mechanize
Running install for module WWW::Mechanize

  The module WWW::Mechanize isn't available on CPAN.

  Either the module has not yet been uploaded to CPAN, or it is
  temporary unavailable. Please contact the author to find out
  more about the status. Try 'i WWW::Mechanize'.

cpan> i WWW::Mechanize
Strange distribution name [WWW::Mechanize]
Module id = WWW::Mechanize
    DESCRIPTION  Automates web page form & link interaction
    CPAN_VERSION undef
    DSLI_STATUS  MdpO (mature,developer,perl,object-oriented)
    INST_FILE    (not installed)

Works for me. Maybe the CPAN mirror you use is out of sync?
