I am a client of sentix.de, a provider of certain financial data.
I need a web scraper in Perl which does this:
First, log in to [obscured] /index.php?option=com_comprofiler&task=login using my personal login data. Second, download a CSV file from sentix.de which is automatically generated by their server when a certain URL (with parameters) is used.
The perl script must be a function (subroutine) like &download_sentix which returns the contents of the CSV file as a string (or an error message with explanation). Reasonable error handling must be done including timeouts.
The code must be compatible with ActiveState Perl 5.14.2. You can use any precompiled modules available from the ActiveState Package Manager (ppm), but no other modules.
