Hello all,

I use perl to sign on to wsj.com to get some data. 
Seems like at about 2pm on Sunday the signon form
changed and the following code fails.  At the last
statement which is a form dump, I get the following

Can't call method "dump" on an undefined value at line

use strict;
use HTTP::Request::Common;
use HTML::Form;
use Date::Simple ('date', 'today');
use LWP::UserAgent;
#use LWP::Debug qw(+);
use HTTP::Cookies;

my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new();

  HTTP::Cookies->new( autosave => 1 ));

my $request = $ua->request( POST

my $form = HTML::Form->parse( $request->content,

print $form->dump;

Thanks all,
