One way is to use scRUBYt!:

==========================================================
rubyforge_data = Scrubyt::Extractor.define do
   fetch          'http://rubyforge.org/'
   click_link     'Log In'
   fill_textfield 'form_loginname', '*login_here*'
   fill_textfield 'form_pw', '*pass_here*'
   submit 0

   stuff 'My Personal Page'

end
==========================================================

Or you can use WWW::Mechanize (scRUBYt! is also built on Mechanize) to 
do the same thing. If you would like to also scrape something there, I 
would suggest scRUBYt!, otherwise Mechanize is the way to go.

Cheers,
Peter
