Hello Monks!
I am trying to submit some requests to a website so that I don't upload 1-by-1 (I have ~100 sequences to run), using the WWW:Mechanize module. But I can't seem to be able to find the correct page to put in my script. The tool I am trying to use is this one: If I just put this:
my $url = ''; my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new (timeout=>1000); $mech->post($url);
I get: Error POSTing Internal Server Error. Same result using get instead of post
By looking at the page source, I see:
<form name="myform" action="/cgi-bin/MEMBRAIN.cgi" method="post" onSub +mit="javascript: return checkform();">

so I am thinking that my URL might be wrong. Any ideas how to point to the correct page so that it gets executed?

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
