How 2 grab and parse the contents of a URL?
Posted on 1997-07-15
I would like to be able to do in CGI what Jeffry Friedel does on a command-line driven Perl script with webget.pl, namely, input a URL into a form field, hit submit, and have the inputted URL's HTML text be parsed by my CGI script so I can do with the text whatever I want. Where do I start? Is there an easy way to do this, or will it be long and complex?
