Using Formbot for Good, Not Evil

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I have a need to automate the testing of the HTML interface on a
server. The general form of a test would be:

Request the page from the server
Set a value on the form
Submit the form
Request the page again and check that the change I made is reflected
Lather, Rinse, Repeat

It seems to me that a webserver using PHP sitting on another server
might be the answer to my problem, even though all I know about PHP is
how to spell it. Does this seem reasonable to you in PHP land? I think
what I want is a version of a formbot.

Thanks for any help you can offer, and your time.

You can install PHP on your own computer and write a PHP script to do
this. No webserver required.
