You might want to try to use WWW::Mechanize instead.. it can make this type of thing extremely easy:
use WWW::Mechanize; use strict; use warnings; my $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new; my $sequence = '...'; $mech->get('http://www.arabidopsis.org/Blast/'); $mech->submit_form( form_name => 'myForm', fields => { 'Algorithm' => 'blastx', 'BlastTargetSet' => 'ATH1_pep', 'QueryText' => $sequence, }, ); print $mech->content;
Note: your code had 'Algorithem' but the actual field element is 'Algorithm'

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
