Scritp to simulate clicks on webpage by chaging the referrer ip address

Hi, I was wondering whther its possible to write a perl script in linux which would go to a webpage and click on the links but change the referrer ip address everytime so that the target website will not know that its coming from a script. Has anyone experimented this before? Thanks.

Hi,

I've written tonnes of similarly tasked scripts, but I have never had a need to consistantly change my identity, its rather brute force. Take a look at the LWP::UserAgent module, specifically "Proxy attributes" (http://search.cpan.org/~gaas/libwww-perl-5.837/lib/LWP/UserAgent.pm#Proxy_attributes).
