Doing an HTTP POST with perl

Recommended Posts

I can''t say that I have ever pursued perl coding knowledge actively, but I''m trying to cobble together a perl script to do an HTTP POST to grab a webpage. I''ve looked in the perl book I have and I did a google search, but I''m not finding enough to go on here. Does anyone have a good example of a perl script downloading a webpage via the HTTP POST method?

Bishop, I''ve done a fair bit of Perl coding for web databases and such, though I''ve never tried what you mention.

I know it''s not exactly what you''re looking for, but here''s a magazine article about downloading web pages in Perl using the LWP module. You''ve probably already seen it - it seems to be well linked around the web.

Just the first thing I came across, I''ll get back to you if I find anything more useful.

I remember trying to do a POST once with perl, and it just wouldn''t freakin work!!!
So i just used GET instead
