Subject: There is no Form Number on that page.
Download (untitled) / with headers

Linux 2.4.17 #4 SMP Fri Feb 18 15:31:35 PST 2005 i686 unknown This is perl, v5.6.1 built for i686-linux I am using WWW::Mechanize 1.18. I am getting this error message: There is no form numbered 1 at ./ line 120 Can't call method "find_input" on an undefined value at /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1/WWW/ line 1269, <STDIN> line 1. I have attached my script ( as regdomain_pl.txt) and an example of the text file it's supposed to parse (example.txt). The way it's supposed to work is like this: unix@host>./regdomain.txt example.txt If you review the file, you will see the URL that it attempts to get the HTML form from. Viewing its source should reveal the form fields my script is attempting to populate. Any help you can provide with this would be substantially appreciated. Thank you.
