    Can PHP fill out a form and submit it automatically?

    Hello,

    Can PHP can retrieve a form from the web, fill it out and submit it automatically, then read the content of the next page after the form is submitted? If so, how?

    Thank you!
    Chris

    Hello Jaswinder,

    Sure, I'm looking into automating the management of several advertising campaigns with different companies. I would like to enter into the members-only area and parse some the information to get a regular read-out of my status without having to visit each of the sites individually.

    Let me know what you find with sockets, I will do some research into that myself.

    Thank you!
