web client programming


Sometime ago I wrote a Perl script that uses LWP in order to log on to my company's Outlook Web Access (OWA), download the emails and feed them into procmail. It worked fine and I was very happy with it. Now the company changed their system and we need to go through a Cisco SSL VPN Web whatever layer in order to get to OWA. The problem is that this extra layer checks whether the web client supports Javascript. Perl LWP does not. The OWA part doesn't need it, but I can't get through that extra logon step without supporting Javascript or pretending to do so.

Does anyone know about some Javascript supporting alternatives to Perl LWP? Basically I need a web browser with Javascript that has no GUI but that I can control via Perl or Python or something else.

Try the guys at www.perlmonks.org; its where all the gurus hang-out.
Possibly also look at search.cpan.org. Maybe someone already has a module done.

AFAIK there is none.

Check this example on Perlmonks:
