in reply to Submit a form using perl module

Yes. There is WWW::Mechanize, which is the easiest method. There also is HTTP::Request, which is the hard way, and which is what WWW::Mechanize uses.

    The user places the request using LWP (LWP::UserAgent, even) rather than HTTP::Request, as shown in the following example:

    use HTTP::Request::Common; $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new; $ua->request(POST 'http://example.com/survey.cgi', [ name => 'Gisle Aas', email => 'gisle@aas.no', gender => 'M', born => '1964', perc => '3%', ]);

    HTTP::Request could have been used instead of HTTP::Request::Common.
