WWW::Mechanize::FormFiller::Value::Random::Date - Fill a timestamp into an HTML form field
use WWW::Mechanize::FormFiller; use WWW::Mechanize::FormFiller::Value::Random::Date; my $f = WWW::Mechanize::FormFiller->new(); # Create a random value for the HTML field "born" my $born = WWW::Mechanize::FormFiller::Value::Random::Date->new( born => string => '%Y%m%d', min => '20000101', max => '20373112' ); $f->add_value( born => $born ); # 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 $last_here = $f->add_filler( last_here => Random::Date => string => '%H%M%S', min => '000000', max => 'now');
This class provides a way to write a randomly chosen value into a HTML field.
- new NAME, %ARGS
Creates a new value which will correspond to the HTML field
NAME. The allowed %ARGS are
string => POSIX strftime string min => minimum time stamp (inclusive) max => maximum time stamp (exclusive)
maxtime stamps must be in the same format as the
The algorithm to implement
maxbarriers is very simplicistic - it tries as many random values as necessary to meet the two criteria. This means that your script may enter an infinite loop if the criteria can never be attained or are too little apart.
- 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.
