in reply to My first LWP script

Look at lwpcook-there are examples with basic authentication from the webserver, or where POST is being used and the authentication is being provided by the pages themselves. I suspect these may at least help you get started. Alternately, it is my understanding that WWW::Mechanize might also be useful, with a recent article appearing on http://www.perl.com/ regarding HTTP::Recorder to generate WWW::Mechanize scripts.

Hope that helps....
