Re^4: using WWW::Mechanize and receiving Unauthorized at line $mech->get($url);
in thread using WWW::Mechanize and receiving Unauthorized at line $mech->get($url);
See WWW:::Mechanize and credentials and the WWW::Mechanize::Cookbook especially Fetch a password-protected page.
Then try do fetch the page manually. Double check if Firefox has already stored a username and password for you.
Next step is to build your code in small steps to see whats going on:
my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new( stack_depth => 1,
timeout => 180,
autocheck => 1 );
# Part 1
my $url = 'http://somewhere.tld';
# Part 2
my $username = '';
my $password = '';
$mech->field(login => $username);
$mech->field(passwd => $password);
$mech->click(); # Which button?
# Part 3
my $outpage = $mech->content();
my $outfile = 'output.html';
# Always use the three argument form of open
open(OUTFILE, ">", $outfile) or die $!;
print OUTFILE "$outpage";
close(OUTFILE) or die $!;
BTW: Please read Markup in the Monastery.
Hope this helps.
