Subject: HTML::Form 'button type=submit' tags are not supported (simple patch attached)
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 402b
This form cannot be clicked on (HTML::Form->click) because <button> tags are not parsed: <form action=foo> <button type=submit name=buttonsubmit value=1234>Click Me!</button> </form> Attached is a 2-line patch. Basically it treats all 'button' tags as 'input' since these two tags are verbially the same: <button type=submit name=foo value=bar> <input type=submit name=foo value=bar> -Eric

AFAICT they have been supported since < perl/commit/e4fdafd42bb999740a08e20fe52d53b5d3befe2d> was applied.
That patch was applied in libwww-perl-5.810
