Text lookup in remote url ?

Hi All.

This has got me stumped

Is there a way that we can search a remote web page for a specific line of
text?
We can check if a specific URL exist using the "MSXML2.ServerX MLHTTP" object
witch works just fine, but is there anyway we can search the page for text
using this same object.

Thanks for the help

You can use that component to issue a GET request for the page, and analyse
the response (ie search through the text that's returned, presumably between
the <body></body> tags)

Cheers

Dear pythonians, I've been reading/thinking about the famous function call speedup trick where you use a function in the local context to represent a "remoter" function to speed up the 'function lookup'. "This is especially usefull in a loop where you call the function a zillion time" they say. I think this is very odd behavior.
