After a half-year of experience of posting/replying to Facebook messages i came to the need to do that automatically, at least partly. The first problem i had encountered is that i can't login to it from within my own program.

Q1. I would appreciate any suggestions on to how that can be done.
Q2. Currently I can't understand what is happening after FORM Submit button is pressed:

<form id="login_form"
onsubmit="return Event.__inlineSubmit(this,event)"
action="https://www.facebook.com/login.php?login_attempt=1"
method="POST">

- if there will be a function within onsubmit field, then i may investigate it; but there is Event - i simply can not find where to look for code that is executed on submit.
- i had an experience in using HTTP POST with successful login results, where fields with id="email" and id="pass" were sent to the server along with their values; therefore i was expecting the similar thing to be done in case with HTTPS POST, but it doesn't work...

What i have to consider to make a proper HTTPS POST request to server?

facebookmy, the url you provided "http://www.facebookloginhelp.net/" covers issues with facebook manual (by user) login. I had found nothing about login by software here.
The second link of you isn't working - why you can't delete it?
As for the third link - i would not be asking here if i was just to use facebook as a user smile.gif

A friend has suggested me to use javascripts for firefox. So far i had written the script for GreaseMonkey that successfully logged me to facebook. I can now use this approach further.

But, still, i am wanting to find a way to login and then interact with facebook through HTTP requests.
Because, i think, it will work faster and less resource demanding. May be i am wrong...

I am sorry if i had chosen the wrong thread - i am still thinking that HTTP itself is something as a base on which all can be built, if i want not to use browser. Therefore i had put a question here.

Is there some tutorial exists that covers my needs to interact with a general site?

I'm not familiar with this "Event"-syntax myself. Could it possibly be a call to a function called "__inlineSubmit()"? Maybe the form submits using Ajax as well.

Can you login to Facebook if javascript is disabled in the browser?

Though Facebook notifies about disabled javascript, login is working. Facebook's feed works fine, but facebook's applications require enabled javascript.

It is certainly a call to "__inlineSubmit()" but i had not find the way to examine this function content...
