I found out about HTTP::Recorder while doing a search on web automation. I came across this page: http://www.perl.com/pub/a/2004/06/04/recorder.html?page=1 It seems to be useful but I can't get it to run (start the proxy). I'm using ActiveState Perl v5.8.7. I downloaded the pm module and when trying to run the code listing under "How to Set It Up: Use It with a Web Proxy" from the command line, I find I need some additional modules: lib/Email (relevant modules under this branch) lib/Class/Accessor/Fast.pm lib/HTTP/Proxy (well I should have expected that) lib/HTTP/Request/Params.pm and then I got stuck at this point on command line: C:\Documents and Settings\dluu\My Documents\code>HttpRec.pl Can't locate object method "mk_accessors" via package "HTTP::Request::Params" at C:/Perl/lib/HTTP/Request/Params.pm line 92. Compilation failed in require at C:/Perl/lib/HTTP/Recorder.pm line 94. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at C:/Perl/lib/HTTP/Recorder.pm line 94. Compilation failed in require at C:\Documents and Settings\dluu\My Documents\cod e\HttpRec.pl line 4. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at C:\Documents and Settings\dluu\My Documents \code\HttpRec.pl line 4. Perhaps a more in depth tutorial on how to establish the proxy for the web browser and a noted list of required dependency modules would be helpful so that I know what I need to download if I don't have them in my Perl installation. I was hoping to use HTTP::Recorder to simplify my web automation of HTTP POST requests, as I'm trying to automate actions that are performed by Java applets and I have to analyze the HTTP traffic with Ethereal and then manually craft the POST request using my analysis. I had hoped that I could have HTTP::Recorder analyze the traffic and generate the scripts for me instead. It looks like I have some more searching to do for now.
please install the module using CPAN installer, and it will handle your dependencies problems.
