use lynx.


lynx -preparsed -source -crawl -dump -accept_all_cookies 'http://www.nytimes.com/auth/chk_login?is_continue=true&URI=http://www.nytimes.com/2001/06/05/business/05GAS.html&OQ=&USERID=YOURUSERNAME&PASSWORD=YOURPASSWPRD&SAVEOPTION=YES'


change YOURUSERNAME with  your username
change YOURPASSWORD with your password.

Couldn't do it in Perl either.

Thank you.

It works -= though - I'd prefer a perl solution.

If anyone has one - I'll open a new Q and guve more points.
