in thread SOLVED!! "Include" parameters from website

Perhaps you have something else in mind and/or I'm misunderstanding here, but if you are accessing "secure" information via plain HTTP, isn't that about the equivalent of an API that would render the whole security assumption moot?

    You are correct of course Polyglot, which is why I am looking at using WWW::Mechanize now to login to the website and execute the webpages as if I was connected to the site from a browser instead. I am struggling with the process of using session IDs to identify the user login that is required to access the pages though but I will figure it out. Thanks, Gerry

      Your post references a PBX, have you checked to see if a module exists to interface with the system in question? Failing that does the page you're having problems with depend on JavaScript being available?

        Marto, that is not a Perl module and I am not calling it as one.
