HTML Scraping script help
by Stickman-Sam - 1/23/12 3:45 AM
My aim is to find/create a script that will:
1. Log in to a web site with my login details
2. Visit different pages from within that login and parse specific sections of data into a file
3. Repeat lots
It isn't for a nefarious purpose at all; it's for a comparison of harmless statistics. I'm able to view all the statistics I want on the different pages, I just need to parse them into an XML or database or something so that I can then manipulate and compare them. I've never done anything like this before and if anyone could point me in the right direction, that'd be fantastic.
First post of many!
