WWW::Mechanize Problem POSTing Formby jerrygarciuh (Curate)
|on Jun 29, 2004 at 15:18 UTC||Need Help??|
jerrygarciuh has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
When using WWW::Mechanize to automate the use of a form whose method is POST I get the following error from whichever line submits the form:
Error POSTing http://www.auduboninstitute.org/test/next.html: Method Not Allowed at ./mech.pl line 26
I have tried using $mech->submit(); and $mech->click(); and get the same results. The CPAN documentation doesn't mention POST at all so I assume it is possible to make this work...

The man who tries methods, ignoring principles, is sure to have trouble.
