Short answer, which you'll see a lot around here -- try again using WWW::Mechanize instead.


Nobody says perl looks like line-noise any more

    Will that work even for forms that are created/modified on-the-fly using javascript? That seems to be the case for that site (my deduction since the site doesn't work when JS is disabled) Kretch
      No, it won't. But it will handle all those nagging problems with cookies and so on, leaving you with only the JS problems to fix. And there's quite a bit on that in the FAQ.
