Description:

I would like to GET the contents of an HTTP_REFERER protected form, post needed information back to cgi that said script uses, and view the output of that script in my browser. I cant seem to figure how to do the posting on this protected form/script. Any ideas?

If you're using LWP::UserAgent and HTTP::Request, you can specify the HTTP_REFERER using HTTP::Request's header() method:

# set up the user agent... $req = HTTP::Request->new(GET => 'http://www.example.com'); $req->header('Referer' => 'http://www.yahoo.com'); # make the request and so on...

As a side note, as well as that method, you can also use:

$req->referer('http://www.yahoo.com');
