AutoBrowser is a stateful replacement for lwp-request. ("GET"/"POST" commandline tools) It provides a mechanism to describe a series of interactions with a server and tracks cookies, redirections, etc throughout the interaction. It is essentially a non-interactive web browser. It supports SSL connections.

I needed to retrieve a CSV file from a company's web site automatically on a daily basis -- however they were using SSL and their site required that I log in and navigate the menus in order to actually get the file. That's how autobrowser appeared.

Requirements:

Perl 5.6.x, plus the following Perl modules:
LWP
Crypt::SSLeay (Optional. Only needed for SSL.)

What's New in This Release:

Added support for new configuration format. The old one still works, but I strongly recommend moving to the new one as it's just as capable, much less verbose, and much easier to understand.
