Taking data from a text file to parse html page

DH
Hi,

I'm trying to strip the html and other useless junk from a html page..
Id like to create something like an automated text editor, where it
takes the keywords from a txt file and removes them from the html page
(replace the words in the html page with blank space) I'm new to python
and could use a little push in the right direction, any ideas on how to
implement this?

Thanks!

DH,
Could you be more specific describing what you have and what you want? You are addressing people, many of whom are good at
stripping useless junk once you tell them what 'useless junk' is.
Also it helps to post some of you data that you need to process and a sample of the same data as it should look once it is
processed.

See Beautiful Soup: http://www.crummy.com/software/BeautifulSoup/
it will parse even badly formed HTML and allow you to extract/change
information as you wish.

Frederic,
Good points...

I have a plain text file containing the html and words that I want
removed(keyword s) from the html file, after processing the html file it
would save it as a plain text file.

So the program would import the keywords, remove them from the html
file and save the html file as something.txt.

I would post the data but it's secret. I can post an example:

index.html (html page)

"
<div><p><em>&qu ot;Python has been an important part of Google since the
beginning, and remains so as the system grows and evolves.
&quot;</em></p>
<p>-- Peter Norvig, <a class="referenc e"
"
replace.txt (keywords)
"
<div id="quote" class="homepage-box">

<div><p><em>&qu ot;

&quot;</em></p>

<p>-- Peter Norvig, <a class="referenc e"

"

something.txt(f ile after editing)

"

Larry,

I've looked into using BeatifulSoup but came to the conculsion that my
idea would work better in the end.
Thanks for the help.

You could use BeautifulSoup anyway for the junk-removal part and then do
your magic. Even if it is not exactly what you want, it is a good idea to
try to reuse modules that are good at what they do.

reading and writing files is described in the tutorial; see

(scroll down to "Reading and Writing Files")

to do the replacement, you can use repeated calls to the "replace" method

http://pyref.infogami.com/str.replace

but that may cause problems if the replacement text contains things that
should be replaced. for an efficient way to do a "parallel" replace, see:

You may also want to look at this stream editor:

http://cheeseshop.python.org/pypi/SE/2.2%20beta

It allows multiple replacements in a definition format of utmost simplicity:
>>your_exampl e = '''
<div><p><em>&qu ot;Python has been an important part of Google since the
beginning, and remains so as the system grows and evolves.
&quot;</em></p>
<p>-- Peter Norvig, <a class="referenc e"
'''
>>import SE
Tag_Strippe r = SE.SE ('''
"~<(.|\n)*? >~=" # This pattern finds all tags and deletes them (replaces with nothing)
"~<!--(.|\n)*?-->~=" # This pattern deletes comments entirely even if they nest tags
''')
>>print Tag_Stripper (your_example)
&quot;Python has been an important part of Google since the
beginning, and remains so as the system grows and evolves.
&quot;
-- Peter Norvig, <a class="referenc e"

Now you see a tag fragment. So you add another deletion to the Tag_Stripper (***):

Tag_Stripper = SE.SE ('''
"~<(.|\n)*? >~=" # This pattern finds all tags and deletes them (replaces with nothing)
"~<!--(.|\n)*?-->~=" # This pattern deletes commentsentirel y even if they nest tags
"<a class\="referen ce"=" # *** This deletes the fragment
# "-- Peter Norvig, <a class\="referen ce"=" # Or like this if Peter Norvig has to go too
''')
>>print Tag_Stripper (your_example)
&quot;Python has been an important part of Google since the
beginning, and remains so as the system grows and evolves.
&quot;
-- Peter Norvig,

&quot; you can either translate or delete:

Tag_Stripper = SE.SE ('''
"~<(.|\n)*? >~=" # This pattern finds all tags and deletes them (replaces with nothing)
"~<!--(.|\n)*?-->~=" # This pattern deletes commentsentirel y even if they nest tags
"<a class\="referen ce"=" # This deletes the fragment
# "-- Peter Norvig, <a class=\\"refere nce\\"=" # Or like this if Peter Norvig has to go too
htm2iso.se # This is a file (contained in the SE package that translates all ampersand codes.
# Naming the file is all you need to do to include the replacements which it defines.
''')
>>print Tag_Stripper (your_example)
'Python has been an important part of Google since the
beginning, and remains so as the system grows and evolves.
'
-- Peter Norvig,

If instead of "htm2iso.se " you write "&quot;=" you delete it and your output will be:

Python has been an important part of Google since the
beginning, and remains so as the system grows and evolves.

-- Peter Norvig,

Your Tag_Stripper also does files:
>>print Tag_Stripper ('my_file.htm', 'my_file_withou t_tags')
'my_file_withou t_tags'
A stream editor is not a substitute for a parser. It does handle more economically simple translation jobs like this one where a
parser does a lot of work which you don't need.

Surely you write your own programs. (program_name.p y). You import and run them. You may put SE.PY and SEL.PY into the same
directory. That's all.
Or if you prefer to keep other people's stuff in a different directory, just make sure that directory is in "sys.path",
because that is where import looks. Check for that directory's presence in the sys.path list:
>>sys.path
['C:\\Python24\\ Lib\\idlelib', 'C:\\', 'C:\\PYTHON24\\ DLLs', 'C:\\PYTHON24\\ lib', 'C:\\PYTHON24\\ lib\\plat-win',
'C:\\PYTHON24\\ lib\\lib-tk' (... etc) ]

Supposing it isn't there, add it:
>>sys.path.appe nd ('/python/code/other_peoples_s tuff')
import SE
That should do it. Let me know if it works. Else just keep asking.

Hello, Does anyone know where I can find an ASP server side script written in JavaScript to parse text fields from a form method='POST' using enctype='multipart/form-data'? I'd also like it to parse the filename. <form name='form1' method='POST' enctype='multipart/form-data' action='sub.asp'> <input type='text' name='title1' value='value1'> <input type='file' name='file1'>

I'm having a bit of a problem with my DataList when I try to update from the user's input. I've included relevant excerpts at the end of this message. In the UpdateCommand code, the "PageLevelTextBox" appears to be found (it isn't returning null), but the Text property is an empty string (""). Am I missing something really obvious? Thanks Colin
