There is a principle in Unix that programs should do one thing well and
you should combine such programs to do complex jobs.  The right solution
here is something like expect, which specialises in being a terminal 
macro package.

Note that some sites deliberately change the keystroke sequence, mainly
to force you to look a the ad^H^H intermediate pages, but also to
frustrate automation, which also prevents the realisation of the full
commercial benefits of the site.
