Scrape Website for TV listings


Hi there

Currently, there is no working xml tv grabbing script that works in New Zealand, so I was hoping to learn to do it myself.

I have a good source and would be much appreciative if someone who knew what they were doing in this regard could point me in the right direction. Cheers

Hey thanks.

I can`t read through it right now but I`ll have a good read when I get the chance

Would I require any knowledge of perl above what is used in that guide?

It always helps, and any C-style programming background would be useful too, but the tutorial looks very well explained so there shouldn't be much need for it.
