Conecting directly to port 80...
Posted on 1998-10-05
Not sure if this is the proper place for this question but...
I need to create a script that connects to port 80 of a specfic server.
The conecting part is not the problem. But when I try to "talk" to the server to retrieve a site. The script would behave as a browser, retrieving the page and any images asociated withit.
So the question really is:
How di I format a proper request method to a web server?
get index.html http/1.1
get / http/1.1
and none worked. I tried reading the RFC for http1.1 and it was just to technical for this semi-geek.
All I need to do is retrieve the main file and parce out anything that would be in font bigger than 3 or in bold...
Thanks for your help
