Net::HTTP and submitting forms

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by charlie bowman, Feb 23, 2006.

  1. I have a little snippet of code I wrote but it doesn't go to the correct
    page. The script pulls the data off of index.php but not
    index.php?pid=fact&person=chuck. What am I doing wrong?

    {'pid'=>'fact', 'person'=>'chuck'})
    puts res.body
