Torgo has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello monks..

I need to write a little command line script to stress-test a CGI script here at work. I'm very familiar with LWP and HTTP::Request, but this particular CGI needs a username and password checksum sent along with each request in a cookie. I've looked for examples of how to embed cookies inside of HTTP requests, but the ones I've found are incomplete and/or incredibly complicated. Is there a simple way to do this?
I write the code while the master is away!
