[webkit-dev] autocomplete/autologin functionality question

first I would like to say hello - I'm a fairly 'fresh' cocoa
developer exploring the webkit and new to this list.
I have a very specific question concerning autocomplete/autologin
I want to write an application (cocoa) that operates like a webspider
(take a given url, explore content and traverse links up to a
specified recursion depth) - showing up differences in the content
compared to my LAST exploration run.
Now I want to login to specific sites that require authorization, and
I don't know how to achieve this using webkit/webview... I think I
somehow have to auto-fill the forms on the pages, but I haven't found
a solution yet.
How do I simulate a 'button press' on a site? A search button, for
example, that I want to trigger after having filled a search field...
I know that most 'search' buttons react on pressing 'enter' while the
corresponding form field has the focus, but I would like to be 100%
sure to press a specific button on a page.
If someone would be so kind to show me some documentation, starting
points, code hints or even apis I would appreciate it very much!
Thank you all,
