Hey there, i am looking for a web browser that i can manipulate from the command line.
i know that with mozilla i have about six or seven commands that i read about on the mozilla website, like
mozilla - remote "openurl(www.somethingorother.com)"
and an already open mozilla browser will go there.
really cool. but i need one that can do more stuff, like download a page and maybe even send an email (right now it can just open the email program window)
so, i guess it doesn't matter what browser i use ( konqueror, firefox, galeon, whatever) as long as it can be controlled from a command line.
it looks good, konqueror would work just fine.
well this one has install instructions that go ./configure make and make install.
it is weird, usually when i use a python module, it justs comes with a setup.py install script that i run. that or i just put the whole thing into the directory that the script will run from .
google has turned up a lot for screen scraping indeed, but almost everything just reads html, or xml.
thanks for your help. there is a really easy to use python module called BeautifulSoup (of all things) but it is only good after the html is ready.
