Auto filling

I am trying to write a perl script to auto fill on a forum using WWW::Mechanize;
___________________________________________
use WWW::Mechanize;
$mech = WWW::Mechanize->new();
$input1 = "TITLE";
$input2 = "BODY";
$mech->get("URL");
$mech->form_with_fields(("subject","XXXX"));
$mech->field("subject",$input1);
$mech->field("XXXX",$input2);
$mech->submit_form();
_______________________________________________

From the source code of the webpage I came to know that TITLE "name=subject", but I am unable to find the name of the "BODY", for your reference I am attaching a screenshot of the BODY.

Can someone help me in finding the name of BODY?

Ah, the id & name for that is simply 'content' (easily found using Firefox w/ the Web Developer add-on and calling Web Developer -> Forms -> Display Form Details) .  Looking at Post submission page in one of my WordPress installs, I'd do something like this (I don't see a 'subject' field in mine, but I do see a 'title'):
use WWW::Mechanize;
$mech = WWW::Mechanize->new();
$input1 = "TITLE";
$input2 = "BODY";
$mech->get("url.to.wordpress/post-new.php");
$mech->form_with_fields(("title","content"));
$mech->field("title",$input1);
$mech->field("content",$input2);
$mech->submit_form();

This is the code I found on source of the body:

<body id="tinymce" class="mceContentBody  wp-editor" dir="ltr"><p><br data-mce-bogus="1"></p></body>

I think maybe you need to look for a TEXTAREA form element instead.
