WWW::Mechanize::FormFiller::Value::Random - Randomly fill out a HTML form field


  use WWW::Mechanize::FormFiller;
  use WWW::Mechanize::FormFiller::Value::Random;

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

  # Create a random value for the HTML field "login"

  my $login = WWW::Mechanize::FormFiller::Value::Random->new( login => "root","administrator","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 a random one out of the list there
  my $password = $f->add_filler( password => Random => "foo","bar","baz" );


This class provides a way to write a randomly chosen value into a HTML field.


Creates a new value which will correspond to the HTML field NAME. The LIST is a list of items one of which will be returned for each call to value(). There is no persistence of these values. For items that can only take a finite set of elements, a random element out of that list is taken by default.

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.


None by default.
