Mechanize


#1

Hi,

I am using mechanize library to do automated form posting. Unfortunately
it
doesn’t seem to work for only gumtree.
Below is the snippet of code that I am using. xxxxx represent the
acutual
post id and ziz value. Similar code works for other web applications
only
gumtree fails. Is it because, the form has a file upload control in it
?

require ‘mechanize’
agent = WWW::Mechanize.new
agent.user_agent_alias = ‘Windows IE 6’
page = agent.get("
http://www.gumtree.com/cgi-bin/email_poster.pl?posting_id=xxxxx&ziz=xxxxx")

form = page.forms.with.name(“email_friend”).first

form.from_email = ‘removed_email_address@domain.invalid’
form.message = “direct http post from code”
results = agent.submit(form)

Thanks
Manjo

How exactly do you know it is failing? Can you be more specific?

Also, you may want to send this message to the mechanize users list:

removed_email_address@domain.invalid

Thanks!
