    LYNX AUTOMATION


    Hi all,

    I would like to use lynx to access to a wbsite. this wbsite requires login. Once you have put the login, you must submit this login, and then a new web requires you a password, and I must submit it.

    I want to automatize this process, but I have no idea how.

    Thks for your help

    I did have a look through the man page and config file, but couldnt see anything that would do what you ask unless the website is using .htaccess rather than a HTML form.

    Hi all,

    Finally I have seen it's posible to log your actions in lynx with this option

    lynx -cmd_log=filename http://theurl.com

    once you have recorded your actions in the file named filename you can do that:

    lynx -cmd_script=filename http://theurl.com

    and it performs this action

    Thks all !
