How to pull information of websites automatically
Posted on 2004-09-22
I am developing a database where there are assumptions made. I need to build in the ability where if the assumption is made upon a variable factor like exchange rates for example , a person can give the url to a website where the information can be pulled in automatically & if the exchange rate spikes , an email must be sent to a person informing them about the spike in exchange rates and that the assumption made is no longer valid.
I dont know how to begin to make this flexible for different clients. different people will have different assumptions made , based on different websites information , how do I begin to code something of this nature ?
