processing links at the command line.


i have about 400+ links that i need to process batch style.

the only problem is that there's a post form to confirm.

the link looks like this:
http://***.***.net/?p=unsubscribe&ui...73d2a99255bebe

i want to loop through all lines, execute the url a hit the 'Confirm' button.

this is a centos box so i think lynx should be able to handle it but the confirm button is catching me up.

any ideas?

THANKS!!!
