I’m trying to figure out if it is possible to pass form input to a perl script using CGI and Apple Script. We have a Blue Socket wireless gateway that we authenticate to by filling out a web page. the idea is that instead of filling out a web page I could create a script to pass the login information to the login.pl script.
Is it possible?
You can definitely submit web-forms without a web browser using either URL Access Scripting or a “do shell script” command using the command-line utility cURL. Both are built-in to Mac OS X 10.1 and higher.
