  Dear Bruce,

  I've written software like that in perl. There are libraries available 
that do the form parsing and button clicking for you. I haven't looked for 
an application to do it, though. It seems like setting up the application 
would be as complicated as the programming anyhow. If you decide to go 
with perl, let me know and I will dig up some old sample code.
