neoldschool has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I want to login into a site proteced with a captcha image.
It's ok for me to enter manually the captcha (e.g. submit the form with WWW::Mechanize sumbit method)
BUT the captcha is generated from a PHP script :
if I do a $mech->mirror('gencap.php', 'cap.jpg'); I can download the image, but mirror apparenly change the location as the current page is blank after calling mirror.
I can call the WWW::Mechanize::back function, but then the image is regenerated...
I also tried to use clone and a second instance of a WWW::Mechanize variable, but it mess with the first instance.
How can I download this image from the PHP script wihout messing with the current page ?
