Please help: Perl script to automate repetative task
Hi all. I have been using macro scripts to automate tasks at work which is great and saves a lot of time IF I leave my computer on all the time. I am wanting to have a simple script of some kind that I can execute hourly with a cron job that will allow me to host it on an internal server so the macro task will be repeated from that instead of relying on my computer being left on all the time.
Is this possible? All it has to do is log into a designated webpage and click a submit button on a GET form in a php page. I am a complete dunce with scripting otherwise I would not need to ask, obviously. Thanks in advance for anyone kind enough to help out with this. I can provide most of the required data I think by reading the raw http requests involved in the process.
