Leland, thanks for the response.  But, for me it's not a question of not 
reading the docs (as Andy assumes).  From the docs I don't see how to do 
what I want. 

The docs lead me to believe:

$mech->get( $url, ":content_file"=>$tempfile );

Requires a URL to follow.  In my case I don't have that.  I have a form 
that needs filling and a submit button.
