Auth Surfing using Perl

Discussion in 'Perl Misc' started by Scott Moseman, Mar 21, 2005.

  1. I want to write some scripts to login to authentication required
    websites and grab some data. Cookie based and secure SSL sites
    probably included. Are there some good modules in Perl that I should
    be reviewing? Any major limitations?

    Thanks,
    Scott

    Have a look at WWW::Mechanize

    One limitation is rather obvious if you think about it - WWW::Mechanize
    doesn't run any browser-side scripting. So features that depend on such
    scripting won't work.
