    Hello,

    I want to fill out and submit Html form (not manually) using Perl or
    other scripting language if necessary. Html form is composed of
    pull-down menu and can lead to another html form when submitting the
    first one.
    Is there a perl module to solve this problem ? Any idea or piece of
    perl is welcome.
    Thanks in advance.

    There is this web automation software called Newbie, http://www.newbielabs.com. It works great for automating web pages using scripts. Both IE and Mozilla Firefox are supported.
