in thread WWW::Mechanize and Facebook login

I have successfully got LWP to login. This seems to work well: (at least the login stuff)

Your going to need Crypt::SSLeay installed though.
use strict; use CGI;

    Hi, I know this is an older thread, but thought it may help others. Here is a sample using Mechanize - you do need the Crypt::SSLeay module installed for it to work.
    use strict; use WWW::Mechanize; use HTTP::Cookies; my $url = "http://www.facebook.com"; my $appurl = "http://apps.facebook.com/inthemafia"; my $username = 'your@email'; my $password = 'yourpass'; my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new(); $mech->cookie_jar(HTTP::Cookies->new()); $mech->get($url); $mech->form_name('menubar_login'); $mech->field(email => $username); $mech->field(pass => $password); $mech->click(); my $facebook_content = $mech->content(); # go to an app url $mech->get($appurl); my $app_content = $mech->content(); print "$app_content\n";
