in thread POSTing with LWP::UserAgent

Thanks for the suggestion re checkboxes. I tried "ON", "CHECKED", "1", "Dammit" -- none of them worked. In general, where can I find more information about this? I'm sure my next problem will have radio buttons or something else I don't know how to do! ...

    I suggest you may want to save the form to disk and change the form action url to point to a cgi that does nothing but display its parameters ( a useful thing to have sometimes, and trivial to write ). Then open the form in the browser usually used, and submit the form, then look at what is being passed for the checkboxes in the query.
      Thanks for the suggestion, but the form is someone else's! There's the rub. Again, where can I look up more info on this stuff? Thanks!
        The form doesn't need to be 'yours'. You just need access its html source. If you don't have that then you may have a problem.
