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

I could not find relevant help on google or your search archives, so I am posting here.

I am scraping a screen that I want to use to submit a form based upon a chosen radio button, which will return a different page. A data::dumper of the form is at the end of the post. I do the following AFTER my $mech object (I'm just including a form dump) returns the data following the '-------...' line (with a status of 200):

(Another update - looks like my original 'code' snipped was stripped out by the moderators - probably because my 2nd code segment didn't have a closing tag))

$mech->submit_form( form_name => 'lmSelect', fields => {selService => 'Load Manager', selEnv => 'Prod', lmRB => + $_}, button => 'viewSLA' );
Note also that for lmRB => $_, $_ is one of the values in the 'menu' array in this dump at the end. I've also tried using a value from the 'value_names' array with the same result.

(Update: here is a link to the full dump):

(Update: here is a link to the page i am parsing. It will not work to actually submit anything here, since the website is internal, but it has the original content.):

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
