Hello There,

I am tring to develop an aotometed login script for http://www.aol.com
in ruby.For this purpose I am using mechanize. my code is given bellow:

require ‘rubygems’; require ‘mechanize’

agent = WWW::Mechanize.new
#agent.user_agent_alias = ‘Windows IE 6’
page = agent.get(‘http://www.aol.com’)
page = agent.get(‘http://webmail.aol.com’)
url=page.body[page.body.index(‘https://my.screenname.aol.com/_cqr/login/login.psp’)…page.body.length]
url= url[0…url.index(’"’)-1]
page=agent.get(url)

frm = page.forms[0]
frm.loginId=#‘Aol user name’
frm.password=#‘Aol Password’
page = agent.submit(frm)
url =
page.body[page.body.index(‘http://webmail.aol.com/_cqr/LoginSuccess.aspx’)…page.body.length]
url=url[0…url.index("’")-1]
