Using Perl to interface with web pages
First post in this forum, hopefully I've got the right one...
Basically I'm after some pointers. I've been using perl for about a year but what I'm trying to do at the moment is something I haven't dealt with before.
I'm attempting to write a script which will read in variables from a text file (I've no problem with this part) and then enter this data into a form on a website, send the form and pull a specific piece of data from the resulting table.
I've written cgi scripts before so I'm familiar (if a little rusty!) with the get and post methods, however I believe I need to use the LWP family of modules.
I've tried reading the CPAN literature on the modules but didn't find it all that helpful.
Can someone give me some pointers or have any links to good tutorials on the subject.
