Hello
I have made a php script that is conecting to my freelancer.com account using my username and password. After that the my homepage is displayed. In steed this whole page i want to be displayed only the remaining Balance of my account.
Here is my php script:

--------------------
<?
curl_login('https://www.thedomain.com/users/onlogin.php','username=MyUser&passwd=MyPass&CookieDate=1','','off');
echo curl_grab_page('http://www.thedomain.com/users/manage.php','','off');

function curl_login($url,$data,$proxy,$proxystatus){
    $fp = fopen("cookie.txt", "w");
    fclose($fp);
    $login = curl_init();
    curl_setopt($login, CURLOPT_COOKIEJAR, "cookie.txt");
    curl_setopt($login, CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE, "cookie.txt");
    curl_setopt($login, CURLOPT_USERAGENT, "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)");
    curl_setopt($login, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 40);
    curl_setopt($login, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, TRUE);
    if ($proxystatus == 'on') {
        curl_setopt($login, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, FALSE);
        curl_setopt($login, CURLOPT_HTTPPROXYTUNNEL, TRUE);
        curl_setopt($login, CURLOPT_PROXY, $proxy);
    }
    curl_setopt($login, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
    curl_setopt($login, CURLOPT_HEADER, TRUE);
    curl_setopt($login, CURLOPT_USERAGENT, $_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT']);
    curl_setopt($login, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, TRUE);
    curl_setopt($login, CURLOPT_POST, TRUE);
    curl_setopt($login, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $data);
    ob_start();      // prevent any output
    return curl_exec ($login); // execute the curl command
    ob_end_clean();  // stop preventing output
    curl_close ($login);
    unset($login);    
}                  

function curl_grab_page($site,$proxy,$proxystatus){
    $ch = curl_init();
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, TRUE);
    if ($proxystatus == 'on') {
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, FALSE);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPPROXYTUNNEL, TRUE);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_PROXY, $proxy);
    }
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE, "cookie.txt");
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERAGENT, "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)");
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $site);
    ob_start();      // prevent any output
    return curl_exec ($ch); // execute the curl command
    ob_end_clean();  // stop preventing output
    curl_close ($ch);
}
?>

This script login into my account and display my home page with my detalies :

Balance: $0.00 USD Inbox: 0 Welcome
and the rest of the html message.
I suppose i must use a function that search in this html source for "Balance" and get what is after this word..
