WWW::Mechanize::FormFiller::Value::Default - Fill a fixed value into an empty HTML form field


  use WWW::Mechanize::FormFiller;
  use WWW::Mechanize::FormFiller::Value::Default;

  my $f = WWW::Mechanize::FormFiller->new();

  # Create a default value for the HTML field "login"
  # This will put "Corion" into the login field unless
  # there already is some other text.
  my $login = WWW::Mechanize::FormFiller::Value::Default->new( login => "Corion" );
  $f->add_value( login => $login );

  # Alternatively take the following shorthand, which adds the
  # field to the list as well :

  # "If there is no password, put 'secret' there"
  my $password = $f->add_filler( password => Default => "secret" );
