i wish it were that easy ... i have to push information to an ssl 
server and monitor the results. this is why is not a simple wget 
operation. a good example of what i am trying to do it to logon to 
an online banking account to download account information ... i need 
to push information to the ssl server. lynx works very well using 
the -CMD_SCRIPT  option. the trouble is that i have to run the script 
from an xterm that has enough rows and columns to be sure that information 
is not lost as the information is piped to a text file.
