Yahoo Login Issues

Threaded View
I'm trying to write a script that logs into Yahoo Fantasy Football.
Once logged in, I'll be able to grab stats and various other pieces of
info about our league.  The problem I'm having deals with actually
logging in programatically.

I've been using Snoopy to help with the user agent side of things and
it seems to work well. I can successfully put together a valid yahoo
login URL based on username/password/challenge.  It looks like the
following: ://

The problem I'm having is that the login page tries to set a cookie and
I'm not sure how to accept that cookie in my script.  Once I have the
cookie I can use Snoopy to pass it to subsequent http requests.
Any ideas?

You may want to try this HTTP client class that is capable of tracking
cookies and send them back to the server of the same domain.
