to post to a PHP script from within perl, you would either define a form in the perl script that has a submit button whose action is a php script, or you can use the LWP module in Perl to generate a POST for you.
this will post the stuff to the php script and fetch the results. it isn't a redirect with hidden args. use LWP::UserAgent; $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new; my $req = HTTP::Request->new(POST => 'http://www.perl.com/cgi-bin/BugGlimpse'); $req->content_type('application/x-www-form-urlencoded'); $req->content('match=www&errors=0'); my $res = $ua->request($req); print $res->as_string; Job --- LaserJetter <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > If you send a form on an HTML page using GET then > the variables show up in > the URL.
