WWW::Mechanize::FormFiller::Value::Interactive - Ask the user to fill out a HTML form field


  use WWW::Mechanize::FormFiller;
  use WWW::Mechanize::FormFiller::Value::Interactive;

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

  # Ask the user for the "login"
  my $login = WWW::Mechanize::FormFiller::Value::Interactive->new( 'login' );
  $f->add_value( login => $login );

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

  # "Ask the user for the password"
  my $password = $f->add_filler( password => 'Interactive' );

name [NEWNAME]

Gets and sets the name of the HTML field this value corresponds to.

value FIELD

Returns the value to put into the HTML field. The value will be read from STDIN. The name of the HTML field to be read and the current value will be printed to STDOUT. An empty string will use the given default. There currently is no way to enter an empty string if there is a different default string.


None by default.
