    Search this site for references to LWP with Super Search, then download it via your favorite method (or go to http://search.cpan.org if you don't have one). You should also look at perldoc for LWP. It's a very commonly used module and there is a lot of information available on how to do things with it.

    This is useful too: How to RTFM (thanks for reminding me, podmaster)

    HTTP::Request::Common

    #!/usr/bin/perl use LWP::UserAgent; use HTTP::Request::Common; $ua = new LWP::UserAgent; $res = $ua->request(POST $url, [%data]); print $res->content();
