in reply to How can i simulate a form post using sockets?

Show us what you have so far. What exactly are you having trouble with? Do you not know the Perl necessary to read/write on sockets? Have you gotten that part, but don't know how to formulate the HTTP request?

No offense, but this sounds like a homework problem (even though it is the middle of summer!). Folks are much more likely to help if you show us what you've tried so we know where you are.

Post the code you have so far in Seekers of Perl Wisdom and ask a direct question. Don't just ask us to do it for you.

Looking forward to helping ..

    Well my program is hundreds of lines code big so I'm not asking anyone to do anything for me - just to help me through this situation that has had me stumped for the past 3-4 days and this is my only resort is to ask someone to help... this is my first time on here and I'm asking a genuine question. I've never had to ask anyone for help before in the past 5 years that I've been programming in PERL. I've never dealt with sockets before so maybe sockets isnt the answer for this question - maybe just a simple HTTP header or something ... anyway I've posted my request in Seekers of Perl Wisdom..
