nc -vvv website.org 80
and then put in my command:
POST http://website.org/action2?sessionid /HTTP/1.0
then i hit return a few times...and i get the html output.
as most have pointed out, I think LWP is the easiest, and best way, especially for me..
also note, the "http://website.org/action2?sessionid" is coming from an array, because it's a bunch of links in a file.
