WWW::Mechanize::FormFiller::Value::Interactive - Ask the user to fill out a HTML form field


=for example begin

  use WWW::Mechanize::FormFiller;
  use WWW::Mechanize::FormFiller::Value::Interactive;

  my $f = WWW::Mechanize::FormFiller->new();

  # Ask the user for the "login"
  my $login = WWW::Mechanize::FormFiller::Value::Interactive->new( 'login' );
  $f->add_value( login => $login );

  # Alternatively take the following shorthand, which adds the
  # field to the list as well :

  # "Ask the user for the password"
  my $password = $f->add_filler( password => 'Interactive' );
