( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'm trying to reproduce headers to submit to a form using HTTP::Request::Common. My problem is that I can't generate a proper Content-Type: multipart/form-data; boundary= header which is like the one Explorer gives. I haven't even come close. Can you help?

Note: I don't necessarily have to use HTTP::Request::Common I just need to generate the proper "boundary". If there is some other way then I'd appreciate hearing about that as well.

Here is the code, followed by my output, followed by the proper output. Many thanks in advance:

#the code #!/usr/bin/perl -w use HTTP::Request::Common; $request = HTTP::Request->new(); $request = POST '/database/some.php3', Referer => '', Accept_Language => 'en-us', Content_Type => 'multipart/form-data', Accept_Encoding => 'gzip, deflate', User_Agent => 'Mozilla/4.0', Host => '', Connection => 'Keep-Alive', Content => { abc => 'dog', cde => '100', }; print $request->as_string; #my output POST /some.php3 Connection: Keep-Alive Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate Accept-Language: en-us Host: Referer: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 Content-Length: 224 Content-Type: multipart/form-data; boundary=xYzZY --xYzZY Content-Disposition: form-data; name="nosresponses" 100 --xYzZY Content-Disposition: form-data; name="userkeyword" dog --xYzZY-- #proper output POST /some.php3 HTTP/1.1 Referer: Accept-Language: en-us Content-Type: multipart/form-data; boundary=-------------------------- +-7d32542f104c8 Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 Host: Content-Length: 362 Connection: Keep-Alive Cache-Control: no-cache
