in reply to Confessions of a virtual monk

I'd like to say Thankyou! for this post and example script. It's cast light on an area\use of perl that I've been stuck for years with. I've only tested the basics but I'm sure with this example and the testing I've done I can no go on to do more. (++ from me)

Note: I realise that what was done was against the rules and perhaps that can never be right but I'm glad it was done and posted.

    Please understand it is a joke, even if it's a working one. If it helps you shed a light over WWW::Mechanize it's good and I'm happy with that, if it helps you cheat with PM it's not good (and I admit to feel a bit unhappy, too).

    I personally enjoy voting intelligently*, and sometimes I end up with unused votes just because I don't find the necessary number of posts deserving them - and this at the cost of not earning the 1/4-probable XPs.

    *In the sense that I like to use my intelligence to vote. I obviously don't mean that my votes are objectively intelligent :)

    Flavio (perl -e 'print(scalar(reverse("\nti.xittelop\@oivalf")))')

    Don't fool yourself.
      I took it as a serious post - but with a humerous example provided. (Very comprehensive and useful example).

      I'm not after it for XP. It's of interest to me because although my skills are limited - I like doing things in Perl (even if they don't have much use) and because the web and web related stuff is such a big part life nowadays.

      What I intend using if for first is to try to use it to connect to network devices (printers and the like) to query them for their status, toner levels etc.
      I had managed to use something around LWP to read a single page. But I couldn't work out\do form submission or following links. I'm now hoping I might be able to 'read' DHTML pages (the world moves on and I'm a looong way behind). The next challege is HTTPS (really stumped there) as even though they are just friggin' printers the world has gone security mad!

      Thanks again for your efforts and bravery in doing\posting.
