lpanokarren has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I apologize for asking to be hand held - but I did read up the FAQs, and also have been trying this myself for several hours - but cant figure out why my perl script isnt even moving to the next page - I am giving the right credentials to the web page - not sure - what is wrong -

If you could please take a look and share anything that jumps out, I would sincerely appreciate it!!!!!

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use WWW::Mechanize; use HTML::TokeParser; use HTML::TreeBuilder; my $agent = WWW::Mechanize->new(); $agent->get(""); $agent->form_id('form1'); $agent->field('ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$txtUname','******' ); $agent->field('ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$txtPwd', '******' ); $agent->click('ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$btn_Login'); print "\n" . $agent->success(); print $agent->status() . "\n"; #print $agent->content_type() . "\n"; #print $agent->title() . "\n"; print $agent->uri() . "\n"; $agent->form_id( 'form1' ); my $stream = HTML::TokeParser->new(\$agent->{content}); print "\n" . $agent->uri();

My output looks like this - the HTTP status code is 200 suggesting it got an 'OK' response - but the uri reported before and after the click button is the same
