Hi all,

I would like to script a specific website. I've had a start with 
httplib, but now I need to push a button (<input type=button>) that 
triggers a Javascript function and then directs to some URL. Obviously, 
I cannot just go to the URL because the function would not get executed.

Can something like this be done via httplib? If not, is there a library 
available to do it?

I would like to avoid scripting a browser (in this case, this would be 
IE 5.5 or IE 6 on a windows box).

I'd be more than happy for ideas.
