in reply to Need to monitor a website that has a login

Having posted a few comments on the same in perlmonks,
i'd advice to use Super Search.
However, there are many modules which you can use for the purpose
use Win32::IE::Mechanize; #other code, url, user, password etc. my $agent = Win32::IE::Mechanize->new(visible=>1); $agent->credentials($url,$user,$pass); $agent->get($url);
That'd be one way of doing it
You can also use WWW::Mechanize module, LWP also works, though i've not tried it
Update::::
the code was for basic authentication (htaccess) and not for filling the form on the website.
If you want to fill in form to login, then you can also use Win32::IEAutomation.
