Description:

I require a Perl script to test a form on a particular page by submitting test data to the form, parsing the returned results page, and saving the results to a variable that can be tested against the expected results.

I need to able to submit data to the following page:
http://www.buildingbetterhealth.com/topic/bodyfat

For example, I would like it to submit:
height=5'10
weight=160
sex=m
age=22

The results page returns the following:
"• Your body fat percentage is 16.4
• This percentage puts you in the normal range
• For your age, the normal body fat range is 8-19 percent"
and:
"• Your body mass index is 23"

I would like the script to save "16.4","normal","8-19", and "23" to variables. Later, I will have to compare the values of these variables to the expected results.

This program should be able to test multiple data sets. I tried programming it using WWW::Mechanize and HTML:TokeParser, but I am having a lot of problems doing so.


Deliverables:
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.

2) Installation package that will install the software (in ready-to-run condition) on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.

3) Complete ownership and distribution copyrights to all work purchased.



Platform:
Unix, Internet Explorer

Hello,

I am a Perl scripting expert prepared to complete testing your form within a day.

I favor the LWP module and then HTML::TokeParser for these tasks. It should be a simple matter to launch a query and then parse the output for the fields you seek. Nevertheless, it may take some care to prepare a query completely and then sometimes there is some slight of hand required to receive the HTML page from a website.

All steps will be documented within the script to allow you to learn these techniques.
