perl script - web site login test

Looking for a script to run which would simulate a user going to a site logging in - this would be run for availability check only. I am not looking for this to be any type of load testing, just a is it working tool.

I am looking to get pointers on how to write a perl script which would,
logon to a https web site , see if logon works, and also report back the data in the cookie.

http://johnbokma.com/perl/https.html
This page gives an example how to get to a https site.

Now looking for example code for logging into the site ( POST ) , check for a string on the next page.
And reporting back the cookie information.

Thanks,
Mark

I believe I found a good resource here:
http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/linux/library/wa-perlsecure.html

it is dated 2006, if anyone used different method recently please let me know.

The WWW::Mechanize module could be used.  It would only be a few lines to have it log in:
