( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Here is my updated code:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use WWW::Mechanize; my $response = ""; my $m = WWW::Mechanize->new(); $m->agent_alias('Linux Mozilla'); #$m->get('https://msp.f-secure.com/web-test/common/test.html'); $m->get('http://alumni.nd.edu/s/1210/start.aspx?sid=1210&gid=1&pgid=3& +cid=40'); printf("%s\n", $m->title()); $m->dump_forms(); $response = $m->submit_form( form_number => 1, fields => { 'cid_40$txtUsername' => '<username>', 'cid_40$txtPassword' => '<password>', } ); die unless ($m->success); printf("response code is %s\n", $response->code); printf("response message is %s\n", $response->message); printf("response content is %s\n", $response->content); printf("response header time is %s\n", $response->header('date'));

The above should be correctly parsing the response from the command. The only problem is that the response doesn't seem to indicate what is going on:

response code is 200 response message is OK response content is (tons of binary data) response header time is Wed, 13 Mar 2013 03:36:18 GMT

I can't figure out from the above what is going on. Does anyone have any hints/tips? Note that I get the above response even if I enter a deliberately incorrect username and/or password.
