LYNX-DEV using Lynx as an automatic internet agent

I'm trying to get Lynx to run automatically, posibly under a 
cron task, on a Unix system.

From looking at the help pages it looked like I could use
the -get_data or -post_data options and simply pipe
the cgi data to the lynx with something like:

echo "source=core;valname=ridley---" | lynx -post_data";

Is this how it is supposed to work? I've played around with it
for a few days without much success.

Is there a way to record via a manual session what the 
cgi data string should be?
I tried running Lynx manually and after executing the cgi 
script I'd save the result as a document to my bookmark file.
This sometimes gave me what looked like a cgi string, but
using the above approach never let me duplicate the session.

Any suggestions or pointer to documentation on how this can 
be done would be appreciated.
