WWW::BugMeNot - An interface to the BugMeNot.com website. Given a URL that requires a registration, it returns a donated username and password
0.01 - September 12
use WWW::BugMeNot; my $url = "http://www.nytimes.com"; my @username_and_password = password($url); print "Username = $username_and_password"; print "Password = $username_and_password";
Many websites require compulsory registration before they will allow readers to access their pages. This is bad for a variety of reasons, and so many people use BugMeNot.com to share common usernames and passwords. This module provides a programmatic interface to BugMeNot.
WWW::BugMeNot presents one method to the outer world:
Which takes a URL, and returns an array containing a username and password. The username is in $array and the password in $array
That's it. There is currently no checking for sites that are not listed on BugMeNot, and the module will do horrid things upon finding such a beast.
Potentially many. This module uses screen-scraping to retrieve the passwords. If BugMeNot change their pages, the module will break.
