Re: Simulate "onmousedown"

Curl doesn't simulate the user interface of a browser, it simulates the HTTP commands a browser sends. That onmousedown statement calls a function called clk(). You'll need to look at the rest of the code for the page to see what the clk() function is actually doing, and create a curl command that does the same thing.
