WWW::Mechanize Can't Post

Hi all,

First of all i'd like to say hi to the community as this is my first post!

My problem is with "WWW::Mechanize"

The script I am programming basically checks a site every 30 mins to see if anyone has added a entry, if the entry exists then I need the script to automatically update the entry and change one of the fields to "NOT AUTH".

The problem I am having is staying logged in, when I redirect to the "correction" page I am logged out again...

The site uses cookies, If I disable cookies on my browser it fails to login.

My question is, when I store the cookie on initial login using the following code;


Code
$bot->cookie_jar( 
HTTP::Cookies->new(
file => "cookies.txt",
autosave => 1,
ignore_discard => 1,
)
);


How do I then reload the cookie to keep it logged in on my next request?

Cheers,

Neil.

it could be because cookies are set with an expire time so they are expiring... y not login and then logout when need to check what ever it may be.
