How to Post Form Data

Keywords:    form method=POST

Question:

When a web page uses "form method=GET", I can pass the information to the form via the URL by specifying the variable names and the data. No problem.

However, if a web page uses "form method=post", I have to manually enter the data into the form and press a button on the form to submit the data. (Since the web page belongs to someone else, I cannot control it's structure).

How can I use WinBatch and/or WebBatch to post data to a form and submit it? Is there a way to do it without opening up a Netscape or an Explorer browser?

Answer:

Umm. Yes. Use the Internet Extender to post forms. Its available for download from the download area under WIL Extenders.
