how to open a web page using perl?


I would like to open a web page using Perl.
I have a device on the internet whose web user interface I would like to open and subsequently automate some of the tabs on that web page.
Is there any specific command for opening a webpage(if we know either the IP address or the DNS name like www.google.com) via Perl?

WWW::Mechanize is a possibility. You can use it for automating a lot of internet activity. LWP and its sub classes can also be used. I think WWW::Mechanize uses LWP internally. Perl itself has no function for interacting with or even simply fetching a webpage.
