Not sure if this is a question better suited for the Perl Monks Discussion thread, but here it goes.

I want to write a Perl program that will automatically get information for me from, mainly my XP level. I noticed that a direct request to the XML ticker returns the level and values of the currently signed in individual.

Is there any way I can make a request for my information without signing in?

In order to get my level through the ticker, I have to send a GET query like this: user=newrisedesigns&passwd=**********&op=login

Because information like my level and XP are public, shouldn't there be a way to retrieve the information through the ticker without signing in?
