Emulate this POST with a script

BElow is the header information, as reported by Mozilla's Live Headers add-in,  that a successful POST uses to retrieve a page through a form.  I am trying to emulate this POST with a script -  Perl, PHP, Python, C# - I am trying to use Perl.  I have done this many times before to get data from web pages but cannot get this one to work.  Are there any web scraping/ spidering gurus out there who can crack this?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Based on the related question you posted last week, I'd say you should look at Perl's WWW::Mechanize module.
