Hi Ruby_pals,
Say, I have login and password for an account.
Is it possible to get logged into it through a ruby code.

Kindly suggest, ways.

One way is to use scRUBYt!:

==========================================================
rubyforge_data = Scrubyt::Extractor.define do
fetch ‘http://rubyforge.org/
click_link ‘Log In’
fill_textfield ‘form_loginname’, ‘login_here
fill_textfield ‘form_pw’, ‘pass_here
submit 0

stuff ‘My Personal Page’

end

Or you can use WWW::Mechanize (scRUBYt! is also built on Mechanize) to
do the same thing. If you would like to also scrape something there, I
would suggest scRUBYt!, otherwise Mechanize is the way to go.

Cheers,
Peter

I kindly suggest that you ask your question in a more specific way.

“An account” could mean a zillion things. A Windows account? A Unix
account?
A Cisco router login? A bank account? The question is meaningless as it
stands.

If you phrased the question as: “I have a login and password for an
account
on a Unix machine which I can access via telnet or ssh. Is there a Ruby
client for either of these protocols?” then it would be specific. On the
other hand, taking 30 seconds of your time to enter the keywords into
Google
would immediately give you the answer you are looking for. Not doing
this
just gives the impression that you can’t be bothered to think for
yourself.
