Need help with Snoopy class function

P: n/a
Dear all,

I am brand new to php, but learning quickly. I need to be able to go
to website, obtain the form elements, cycle through the form elements,
fetch the links for each page that results from the submission of the
form elements, and then fetch all the content of the pages refered in
the links (its approx 115,000 links). If i understand it right,
Snoopy is the way to go with this. But the problem is, is that we
cannot get snoopy to work (expect for the submit function). I have
gone through all the text files that come with snoopy, and even when
we just cut and paste the example code from the text files, it does
not work. for example, when we pasted the fetchtext function example
code we got the following error:
.............

Notice: Undefined variable: postdata in
c:\inetpub\wwwroot\gasearch\dev\test files\Snoopy.class.inc on line
1153

Warning: fsockopen(): php_network_getaddresses: gethostbyname failed
in c:\inetpub\wwwroot\gasearch\dev\test files\Snoopy.class.inc on line
1092

Warning: fsockopen(): unable to connect to lnk.ispi.net:80 in
c:\inetpub\wwwroot\gasearch\dev\test files\Snoopy.class.inc on line
1092

c:\inetpub\wwwroot\gasearch\dev\test files\snoopyfetch.php on line 23

Notice: Uninitialized string offset: 1 in

Notice: Uninitialized string offset: 2 in
c:\inetpub\wwwroot\gasearch\dev\test files\snoopyfetch.php on line 25

.............
we made absolutely no changes to the code, just a simple cut and
paste. Given the way that snoopy is discussed on various groups, we
get the feeling that this is a really easy class function to use,
which leads us to believe that we are missing some very simple step.
please if anybody can help us out we would be greatful, or better yet,
if anybody has done a task simular to ours at hand, if you could just
post some code as to how you did it....thank you for your time.

Does Snoopy have some kind of configuration file that needs to be set?
It almost seems like the variables are not coming through, which makes
me wonder if Snoopy assumes that the posted variables are
automatically becoming global variables. If so, check to see if
register_globals is set in the php.ini file.

i have been reading everything that i can get my hands on, and have
fixed alot of problems, but i am still getting this error msg:

PHP Notice: Undefined index: query in
c:\inetpub\wwwroot\gasearch\dev\test files\snoopy
stuff\Snoopy.class.inc on line 147

along with a few others. but primarily this one and the same error
for line 132 (same file) Any time snoopy.class.inc uses the "scheme"
it gives an undefined index error....i am really going crazy....I am
assuming that this must be a problem on my computer, because after
reading all the group postings that i can find that discuss snoopy,
lots of ppl use it. are there any changes that "must" be made in the
varible settings and/or php.ini....if somebody can, please help.

An undefined index error normally means you're doing something like
this:

$howManyUsers = $userInfo["userCount"];

when no value has ever been placed into the "userCount" index of the
array $userInfo.

See anything like that?

that is exactly what is see, but it is in the code of the class
function, and everybody else in the world seems to be using snoopy
successfully....i am thinking that maybe there is a setting in my
php.ini file that i have incorrectly set...if anybody out there is
willing, i would love to take a look at somebody php.ini file that has
ran snoopy successfully. i know its asking alot, and is probably not
the most security minded thing to do, but i have nobody that i can go
to for immediate help, and would just like to know for certain that my
ini is setup right.

My guess is that most PHP coders don't code with error_reporting set
to all. They should, but they don't. I don't code with error_reporting
on max either, instead I set it there when I'm debugging.

Change your error reporting level to make the error messages
disappear. Or, better, edit Snoopy so that the line that generates the
error is wrapped in an if (isset($dog["color"])) block.
