Is there a way with PHP (or another SS language) that I can login to another web site and get the HTML source of that page?

Much like the way that WAYN logs in to someone's hotmail account on signup and collects all their contact information?

Thanks guys, any help much appreciated as always

    hi jonlondon,

    try with the snoopy class ->

    It's really simple to use and well commented.

    But if you need to log on an https web page you will probabliy need the cURL libraries ->

    Let me know.
