Hi Rolf, many thanks for trying to help out and apologies if I seem to not get it... I tried your code (which I think is pretty much what I have now), and the error still the same.
use WWW::Mechanize(); while(<>) { if($_=~/^>(.*)/) { my $id=$1; my $seq=<>; chomp $seq; print "$id\n"; my $url = ''; #what + I see in the browser, as you said my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new(); $mech->get($url); $mech->submit_form ( form_name => 'myform', fields => { #textarea name | value S1 => ">$id\n$seq", #Radio button one with value (parameter 1) R4 => 'TOPpre', #Radio button one with value (parameter 2) R2 => 'SignalYES', #Radio button one with value (parameter 3) R3 => 'Human', #Fill in email (parameter 4) email => '' } ); } }

The code executes until I print the id and then exits, with the error that I have posted earlier. I specified the form_name too, but nothing...

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    You didn't provide a SSCCE because your input is read manually.

    My guess is that your data is wrong. I also get an error with random data.

    So please test the validity on the website manually.

    And try to disable JS in your browser to see if it's needed.

    WWW::Mechanize can't do JS.

    Cheers Rolf
