enigmae has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am trying to write a script that can post forms automatically without requiring a submit button press. I noticed that using GET instead of POST allows you to mimmic a submit press cause all the parameters are passed in the URL. Where are the paramters and values stored in a POST? Is there an easy way in PERL to mimmic a web browser through code?
What i ultimatley want to do and have done a bit is parse web pages extracting values then make a "form" in code and post it to a server automatically, then redirect the reply from the form post and parse it for some easy http link extraction.
Thanks for all your support and I hope this post finds you all well.
