Select options from website to initiate download from script (wget alternative?)


I usually use wget to download stuff from websites when scripting.

I have a new requirement that requires me to authenticate then select some options to execute the download. How would I go about this?

First thing that comes to mind is using keyboard macros in the Windoz world but I need to do this in bash or perl.

Thanks & Regards,
