Need help with POST Can't Post

I am trying to write a perl script that will select a product to shop from a website, enter quantity, add to cart and checkout. I have been able to select the product but i am not able to submit the 'add to cart'. The 'add to cart' is an image instead of a button. I am using POST but it is not working. Here is part of the code i am using:

my $url = ";
my $browser = LWP::UserAgent->new;
resp = $browser->post($url,
['Cart_Qty' => 'form.submit()']);

Section of the HTML code:
<form name="Cart_Qty" action=";cPath=2&amp;prod_no=1&amp;action=add_product" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">

<div id="cartAdd">
Add to Cart: <input type="text" name="Cart_Qty" value="1" maxlength="6" size="4" /><br /><br /><input type="hidden" name="prod_no" value="8" /><input type="image" src="includes/templates/template_default/buttons/english/button_in_cart.gif" alt="Add to Cart" title=" Add to Cart " /> </div>

Appreciate any help with this. Thanks!

That sounds like a scary script. Why are you doing that?

Without putting this into emacs and trying to debug it myself, the only thing that jumps out at me is you have two HTML elements named Cart_Qty. That could cause problems.

mixing POST and GET data and javascript to boot? Yikes.
