I am trying to create a webbot that will automatically place a
pre-order on Half.com(equivalent to going to a Half.com product page
and clicking on "Match My Price"). I have been able to successfully
go through all the necessary steps to creating a pre-order by having
curl post the necessary variables, except the next to last page.
The next to last page posts 8 variables, 2 of which change. I can
tell that they change, because I have a script that analyzes a form to
see what variables are received. The post variables that change are
involved that was changing those variables. However, I removed the
form analyzer and those variables still change! If I do not send
those variables, I will not be directed to the correct page.
I have setup two files on my domain to illustrate what I mean. If you
go to http://www.bestdiscountmedia.com/halfauthentication6.html and
click on "place my pre-order", you will see what I mean.
I am fairly new at this, so any help is greatly appreciated.
Re: Curl question regarding posting variables that change.
Thank you very much for that in-sight. The x and y were, as you
stated, just co-ordinates of the input image. It turned my script
wasn't correctly posting one of the other variables. The x and y
variables, while being posted were actually not relevant.
