  Description     : perl web scraping library like jQuery

Web::Query is a yet another web scraping framework, with a jQuery like

Web::Query built at top of the CPAN modules HTML::TreeBuilder::XPath,
LWP::UserAgent, and HTML::Selector::XPath.

Web::Query uses HTML::Selector::XPath and only supports the CSS 3 selector
supported by that module. It doesn't support jQuery's extended queries
(yet?). If a selector is passed as a scalar ref, it'll be taken as a straight
XPath expression.
