in reply to WWW::Mechanize for nonexistent fields?

Indeed, friedo is right.
The formfields are generated by javascript, thus www::mechanize cannot handle them. (as you noted as well)
The only application (i know of) that can be used to test javascript from within a browser is watir, written in Ruby.
But anyone with a bit knowledge of Perl should find out that Ruby isn't that hard, and looks a lot like Perl (flamewar follows :) )

    I hadn't user watir, but for me samie has done the work nicely (testing).
