    Lynx - automated keystrokes

    Hi Guys,

    I have an issue im hoping you can help me with, I'm setting up a cronjob which requires authentication to a website, obviously when doing it from my browser it is fine, when using lynx i am presented the login page, being automated I need it to fill the user/pass and log in, to continue it's job (the website it authenticates to is not controlled by me), I have been reading up that you can make a "keystroke file"

    lynx will jump through 4-5 hoops before it gets to the login page.

    Has anyone had any experience with writing keystroke files?

    If anyone has some examples on what a keystroke file would consist of, or what 'rules' i should follow when making one that would really help

    Many thanks

    Danny


    Sorry, I ahve worked it out, it's litteraly as simple as dumpnig the log using a param -cmd_log and then calling that log as -cmd_script which just mimics it.

    Hope this helps
