Hi Perl gurus,
I'd like to programmatically access a password-protected site. When I GET
a cookie. I do have credentials for the site. So I can POST my
username/password to the login page, but I need to manage the cookie the
site sets so that I can then be forwarded to the password-protected area.
Before I dive too deeply into this, does anyone have advice/pointers on
the best way to manage this?
(my problem would ultimately be solved by NY Times opening up their
article search API, which is "coming soon"...)
