in reply to Submitting a second form

Counting forms is not necessary when the forms have unique characteristics, which in practice they always have.

$mech->submit_form( with_fields => { modem => '1122.3344.5566', ip_select => '', } );

    I tried the example you gave and thought that it may work, but I get the error "There is no form with the requested fields".

      Hello, I would recommend getting the firefox add-on Firebug, inspect the page for the form's name in the HTML, and add it that way. for example:
      $mech->submit_form ( form_name => 'form', fields => { modem => '1122.3344.5566', ip_select => ''} );
      In fact, looking at your code again to give you that example, problems may have been caused by not separating the field names with a comma? But I'm not sure.. see if that works for you, though..
      Actually, it's not an error. There is no form with the requested fields. Is the url correct? Any syntax problems? Try this:
      #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use WWW::Mechanize; my $url = ''; my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new( autocheck => 1 ); $mech->get($url); my(%fields) = ( modem => '1122.3344.5566', ip_select => '', ); my $result = $mech->submit_form( with_fields => %fields, ); print $result;
