Books - Ruby - Mechanize - HTTP

Hello,

Anybody knows a good book with examples to understand Mechanize and the
HTTP protocols (GET and POST)?

I don’t understand it and i can’t find the right books about these
topics specific.

Thanks

I am unaware of any book covering Mechanize.

I wrote up some of my experiences using Mechanize here:

 http://www.jamesbritt.com/2007/4/8/how-i-did-it-rubystuff-com

but the details on the Mechanize API may be somewhat dated.

I’ve found Web Client Programming with Perl to be very helpful:

http://www.oreilly.com/openbook/webclient/

It’s free online, and despite using Perl the examples are useful and the
appendices very informative.

There are also the various HTTP RFCs, too.
