I have looked at that module and I don't see how to use a cookie_jar with it to first login to their website. I am looking through the module on cpan with the doc therein contained.
I have put a TON of time into this and don't want to start at ground zero, unless I have to.
Therefore, how would I get what I have already written to work?
I added all the form fields to the LWP version I made, but it does not seem to be doing it right. Is there a way to make this code here work:
my $_cookie_file = "/home/first/cook/.lwp_cookies.dat";
$_post_url = 'http://www.eb2b.net/E2B_UMLogOn.process';
# Create new LWP::UserAgent object
$browser = LWP::UserAgent->new;
# Add a new Cookie Jar to the LWP Object
$browser->cookie_jar(HTTP::Cookies->new("file" => $_cookie_file));
# Spoof a very capable browser
# Allow https protocol and http....
$browser->protocols_allowed( [ 'http', 'https'] );
# Add the HTTP::Request for POST...
$req = HTTP::Request->new("POST" => "$_post_url");
# Add "content type" as form encoded
# Add the "Form fields" that are contained in the page...
+nd=User with this name was not found.&hMsgInvalidPassword=Logon not v
# Spoof the referrer to make the site think it's a person
# from the login page...
# Ok, now Perform Task
$response = $browser->request($req);
# This is not working as it is posting in the 'ELSE' statement. It is
+actually posting this in the "$response->content" field:

If not I'll try to figure out how to use the WWW::Mechanize module.
Thank you for any further assistance you can be.
