( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
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:
use HTTP::Request; use HTTP::Cookies; my $_cookie_file = "/home/first/cook/.lwp_cookies.dat"; $_post_url = ''; # 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 $browser->agent('Mozilla/5.0'); # 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 $req->content_type("application/x-www-form-urlencoded"); # Add the "Form fields" that are contained in the page... $req->content("IWPEProcessFlow.submitted.sequenceID=&logonUsername=m +yhiddenusername&logonPassword=myhiddenpass&Logon=Login&hMsgUserNotFou +nd=User with this name was not found.&hMsgInvalidPassword=Logon not v +alid.&fromHomePage=default_B2B.htm"); # Spoof the referrer to make the site think it's a person # from the login page... $req->referrer(" +B_UMLogon.tem"); # Ok, now Perform Task $response = $browser->request($req); if($response->is_success) { # This is not working as it is posting in the 'ELSE' statement. It is +actually posting this in the "$response->content" field: START $response->content <HTML> <!-- IWLoadCurrentCustomerLocale.tem - -- Copyright (c) 1997 InterWorld Corporation --> <HEAD> <META HTTP-EQUIV=REFRESH CONTENT="1;URL=/E2B_UMLogOn.process"> <TITLE>Refresh User Repository</TITLE> </HEAD> <BODY BGCOLOR="#ffffff"> <!--<A HREF="/E2B_UMLogOn.process"> <FONT SIZE="3" FACE="verdana, arial, helvetica">Please click here to c +ontinue...</FONT></A> --> </BODY> </HTML> END $response->content
If not I'll try to figure out how to use the WWW::Mechanize module.

Thank you for any further assistance you can be.
