in thread HTML::Form getting button by id

Well, I did scan the HTML::Form perldoc before making this post. I would say that the doc could be more digestible by using the term pattern instead of selector. Not that I'm making any excuses. And (don't worry, I'm already wearing my dunce cap) my code is still broke:
my $login; foreach (HTML::Form->parse($self->{resp})) { if ($_->find_input('#btnLogin')) { $login = $_; last; } } die $! if not $login;

    What part of your code does not work, and how does it fail? Also, what is the input HTML?

      Please disregard my post. I realized that my server at work is running a rather old version of perl: v5.8.8 And thus an old version of HTML::Form which doesn't appear to support the methodology mentioned above. I confirmed that my code works using a recent HTML::Form. My apologies.
