RSS html rip
Posted on 2006-11-28
I want to make an RSS feed. What I want it to do is first log into a site, get values from a specific HTML page, and then put these values into the feed. Using PHP, Perl, Ruby or Java, does anyone know a way that I can fetch a HTML page from an external web site (remembering that it will need to provide some authentication first)?
Specifically what I'm looking for is a way to fetch a page behind authentication automatically, using my username and password for the site, and to basically save that page to my server so that I can work on pulling out the values I want.
