initself has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Due to a very obstinate website, I'm having problems obtaining all of the inputs for a particular web form using WWW::Mechanize. My $mech object only returns two of the inputs whereas there should be 4 returned. You can see all the possible inputs in the source (the form name is "aspnetForm"). Since the other two aren't returning, I'd like to add those missing values to the HTML::Form object and submit them. It doesn't look like the HTML::Form object allows this; it will allow you to modify existing inputs but not add entirely new ones that weren't in the retrieved form.
1) Is there a way to add an input to an HTML::Form object?
2) If not, is there a way to create an HTML::Form object from scratch?
