help with WWW::Mechanizeby waoverholt (Initiate)
|on Feb 08, 2013 at 23:26 UTC||Need Help??|
waoverholt has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am a relatively new perl user (still very much the beginner) and I am working on a script to interface with a website (http://linux1.softberry.com/berry.phtml?topic=fgenesb&group=programs&subgroup=gfindb).
Essentially I would like to upload a local file to that form, select a different "closest organism", hit "Process", and then download the resulting textfile to my computer.
Running the code:$mech->dump_forms();
seems to work at finding those forms but I'm not quite sure how to navigate the fields. Here is what I have so far. Obviously incomplete for the task, but even the first checks fail.
Thanks for taking the time to read this and any advice would be greatly appreciated.
