That is impossible.
1. The html is broken (no form tags), which is why there is no default form, to be set as default, or for you to select (via $mech->form_name or $mech->form_number), and why $mech->click doesn't work. This is a bug in WWW::Mechanize, it should throw a useful error messages, example
use WWW::Mechanize; $ua=WWW::Mechanize->new; $ua->get('http://search.cpan.org');#got a form warn $ua->forms; warn $ua->submit; $ua->get('http://cpan.org');#no forms here warn $ua->forms; warn $ua->submit; #dies here __END__ HTML::Form=HASH(0x1d76ca0) at - line 6. HTTP::Response=HASH(0x1d77114) at - line 7. Warning: something's wrong at - line 9. Can't call method "make_request" on an undefined value at D:/Perl/site +/lib/WWW/Mechanize.pm line 1641.
2. Clicking the button calls javascript, which is not supported (see WWW::Mechanize::FAQ). Besides, the javascript only redirects to rebootinfo.cgi (and it does that with eval -- whoever wrote this should be shot).

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.
