Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

  Version         : 0.0.9a

  Description     : stateful programmatic web browsing

A library for browsing the web in python. Mechanize acts like a browser
allowing you to do web scraping, functional testing of web sites and
things no one has thought of yet.

Among other things, mechanize:
    * Follows links
    * Fills in HTML forms
    * Automatically observes robots.txt
    * Has a browser history

It was modelled after the Perl module WWW::Mechanize.
