How to update a Joomla! article programmatically

I am looking for a working example (PHP code and also I presume SQL stuff) of how to update an existing article on a site where Joomla! is the running software.
Practically, I have an existing article but I want from time to time to programmatically update his content and his title.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This is a good starting point.

Can you give me more advice in that API about the goal I want to reach ?
I am not very familiar (not a all in fact) in these APIs
David FavorLinux/LXD/WordPress/Hosting SavantCommented:
You just have to go through the API calls + pick those which seem to work best.

The way you become familiar is to just jump in + use the calls.

How exactly you arrange to call the API will depend greatly on the language you use.
