Are there any good tutorials on mechanize? I looked around and found a few code examples, but the didn't really go about explaining the code. Also the documentation is more of a stub than actual doc. Also since it requires Hpricot does that mean an instance of mechanize have all the search functions of Hpricot?

I am really interested in any good Mechanize tutorials as well. Such a seemingly useful tool that I can't find very much documentation on.

I have looked, and looked and never found much besides the examples that you found yourself. The tutorials are probably Perl only. This has some mechanize examples, but its a higher level article and talks about all of the screen scraping techniques available to Ruby (like REXML+regxp, WATIR, Rubysoupful etc.) http://www.rubyrailways.com/data-extraction-for-we... Decent article, but not many links or examples.
