Is it possible to script lynx to perform a series of commands?

I am writing a script that monitors a web service.
I need something that can login and then request a couple of pages.
The web site uses session cookies so it has to be done all at one time.

Currently I'm doing this to login & it works fine...

(echo 'username=user&password=pass'; echo '---') |
lynx -accept_all_cookies -post_data

Now I just need to be able to move around in the web site.
Thanks in advance for any help,
