here is the answer:
$fcontents = join ('', file ('http://www.yahoo.com.net'));

but you cannot get the content of an https (SSL) url, for that you need the curl extension

us111 is right!

here is how for the secure connection using curl extention:

$ch = curl_init();

     curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_URL, "https://www.yoursecureserver.com/");
     curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_USERAGENT, "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)");
     curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER,1);
     $content = curl_exec($ch);

curl_close($ch);

It actually sounds like you want to set up a proxy cache on your server to me.

I have used code like the following:

$f_contents = array();
$fp = @fopen("http://www.example.com/somepage.php?var=$parm",'r');
while ($line = @fgets($fp, 1024)) {
     $f_contents[] = $line;
}
@fclose($fp);

You can then parse the page and do whatever you like with the output, each line in the page is an item in the $f_contents array.
