Send a POST request with cookiesby tune (Curate)
|on Mar 22, 2014 at 23:40 UTC||Need Help??|
tune has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I was thinking not to worry about page rendering, and simply send the POST request in to the page, and getting the result page back. I know LWP::UserAgent is capable of doing that, but I am not sure if I can maintain the login session ie. capturing all the cookies and feeding that to the LWP::UserAgent request. I need examples of the cookie passing if LWP can do that, perhaps combined with file upload. I tried some Googling but no luck yet.
ps: I am open to other solutions too, eg downloaded PhantomJS and played with it a bit, but would be happier to stay in Perl domains.
