What does this even do?

So I wrote this Python script. My goal is to fill out a form automatically. I wrote a script that sends an HTTP POST request to a form by using the following code:

This gives me: <Response 200>.
I'm not entirely sure what to make of this.
Was the form submitted successfully?

200 is the code for OK. It means that it is successful. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_HTTP_status_codes

Thanks, @CosmicBear! Also, can I see if I got signed in (since the username and password were obviously fake)? It did get submitted successfully, but then what do I do if I want to see how the form was handled?

@saucybaka Maybe print the content of the response back?

What is your overall goal for this project?

Response 200 literally means it was successful
