http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Scripting/Q_24151725.html#a24094017

I get a parse error on line     curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_ USERPWD, $details);    
<?php
 

$url = "http://www.valueline.com/secure/vlispdf/stk1700/index.aspx";

$details = "xxxx:yyyy";

 

// create a new cURL resource

$ch = curl_init(); 
 

// set URL and other appropriate options

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_ USERPWD, $details);

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);

 

 // grab URL and pass it to the browser

$result = curl_exec($ch);
 

// close cURL resource, and free up system resources

curl_close($ch);

 

echo $result;
 

?>
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

<?php

$html_page_source = "http://www.valueline.com/secure/vlispdf/stk1700/current.aspx?issue=7";

 

preg_match_all('/\b(https?):\/\/[-A-Z0-9+&@#\/%?=~_|!:,.;]*[-A-Z0-9+&@#\/%=~_|]\.pdf/i', $html_page_source, $links);

 

foreach($links['0'] as $link)

Thanks,  I already did searches in Google..

which led me to uncomment line in PHP.ini file -->  

;extension=php_curl.dll  

to

extension=php_curl.dll


Now i get a new error :    

PHP Warning:  PHP Startup:  Unable to load dynamic library ' ./php_curl.dll'    -  The specified module could not be found.

Did you run
 <?php
phpinfo();
?>  

to see if curl is installed at all

yes i did..    so what am i specifically looking for in all that config info?    i'd rather not post 200 lines of the output from running -->

<?php
phpinfo();
?>  

which i placed above lines inside a new  InfoPHP.php  file  and ran it as follows :

>    php -f InfoPHP.php

at this point..   i sort of wish someone would have just shown me a way to do what i need using Perl..

Curl dll is present there in my C:\php\ext

in the php.ini file  -->   i think i need to need to change the extension_dir from :

extension_dir = "./"

to

extension_dir = "./php/ext"
