I tried elinks in Fedora 10. It's really cool text mode browser. But it seems not the one I want. What I want to do is:
1st step: Open one webpage. I can just simply write the command in my script: elinks www.myexampleweb.com
2nd step: Move to the user and password field to input user name and password to log in. Can't find the option in elinks command. I want to use one command in script to feed the form and don't want to manualy input them.
3rd step: Click one link by text. I did this in one script language in Windows OS with IE browser. But I can't find similar option in elinks.
The biggest difficult is how to write the command one by one to execute the sequential action of browsing. I mean if elinks can return the handle for the current browsing session. Then the following command can use that handle to continue to browse. Like:
$handle = `elinks www.myexampleweb.com`
elinks $handle -option1
elinks $handle -option2
How can I get this automatic browsing done by elinks? Any help is appreciated.
