in reply to Remote web form post

Where do you define and fill $res?

That variable is never defined or filled and therefore is undefined.

Maybe you should consider to use strict and warnings.

Addendum:

I had another look at your script and think, there are more flaws than the one I previously mentioned.

  • $req should contain a HTTP::Request object; so you should create one.
  • POST 'http://...' is missing the correct operator between POST and the URL string
  • $ua->request() returns a response object; you should give the variable a better fitting name than $request.

    Sure its not :)

    use DDS; use HTTP::Request::Common qw(POST); Dump( POST 'http://example.com', [ qw' username joe password joe ' ] ) +; __END__ $HTTP_Request1 = bless( { _content => 'username=joe&password=joe', _headers => bless( { "content-length" => 25, "content-type" => 'application/x-ww +w-form-urlencoded' }, 'HTTP::Headers' ), _method => 'POST', _uri => \do { my $v = 'http://example.com' } }, 'HTTP::Request' ); bless( $HTTP_Request1->{_uri}, 'URI::http' );

    I agree with the rest of your words

      Ah, thank you for the hint. I tested with HTTP::Request, which I prefer...

      I thought of POST being a bareword and not an exported function from HTTP::Request::Common.

      Well, now I see, I don't like that style... ;-)
