in reply to Reaped: how to get pdf's that are http links

I had used Win32::IEAutomation(to browse the site,fill forms etc.)
along with Win32::GuiTest to save files from the internet (especially when you get the "Save As" popups).
Here's the actual code that i used to save file:
use Win32::GuiTest('FindWindowLike','SetForegroundWindow','SendKeys',' +PushButton'); my @windows = FindWindowLike(0, "^File Download - Security Warning","# +32770"); SetForegroundWindow($windows[0]); PushButton("&Save",1); SendKeys("%S"); sleep(2); SendKeys($file); SendKeys("~");
For this though, you have to make the IE/Firefox window visible.
