PHP auto-fil and auto-submit html form
Posted on 2009-07-02
I've got a weird idea here and was wondering how to go about it. (I have no idea as to where to start.)
I've got a web-form that enters data into a mysql database when the user submits. I would like to program a php script to automagically fill in the info *and* submit it so that I can automate a whole bunch of entries (1000 for example) so I can have a ton of random sample data to work with for some other scripts that will pull this data and possibly try to trend it.
Just so we're 100% clear, I know I can do it from the shell easy enough, but the thought struck me "I wonder if I could do it this other way?" So this is more of a curiosity than anything.
