Thanks for the reply. I tried to follow the links to the separate
frames but I end up back where I started, so I’m thinking there is
something more complicated going on at the server-end, perhaps do with
the PHPSESSID? I’m using Net::HTTP rather than WWW::Mechanize to try to

If I load this on the browser it returns a page with three frames one
of which contains the info I want. In the script it returns this HTML:
BRENDA: Entry of alcohol dehydrogenase(EC-Number 126.96.36.199 )
Sorry, but your browser doesn't support frames. Please
use another browser!
The frame with name=“flat” is the one I want so I next make a query
using the same src as given for that frame:
in this case. I.e. the same as before but adding the PHPSESSID and
Unfortunately the HTML returned from that query is identical to the
first so I’m back where I started. Interestingly, if I try to open the
single frame I want as a new tab in my browser it takes me back to the
three frame version (rather than that one frame as a single page as I
would expect). So it seems like the site is designed to make viewing
individual frames difficult.
seemed like it might mess with the way the browser loads the frame in
Any help grealty appreciated.
