How To Use LWP to Extract Form Data from Server

Posted by bobinyec on 2007-01-31 05:33

I'm trying to use lwp to contact a server and simulate sending a form. So far, the server sends the form response back to me and I put it into a file. It turns out that this file is just a very brief shell which runs javascript in order to generate the page that a user would see if they used a browser to submit the form. Is it possible to cause this javascript code to be executed, from my perl script? How?

Thanks,

As it turns out, the file only appeared to be a shell. In actuality, not all of the file was delivered. Perhaps someone could give some guidance on *that* problem instead.

Things seem to be working as intended now. (?)
