Using urllib2 to get info from webpage

145 100+
I'm trying to familiarize myself with urllib2 and what I want to try is to take a puzzle from a website, complete it and then submit it back to the website. So far this is what I have but I do have some ideas for other parts of it. For now I'm just working on getting the puzzle from the page. This will print out the entire page. BeautifulSoup and html5lib were suggested to me and I briefly looked at them but wanted to know if there's a simplier way of grabbing info from a site.

  1. import urllib2
  2. req = urllib2.Request('http://www.cryptograms.org')
  3. response = urllib2.urlopen(req)
  4. the_page = response.read()
  5. print the_page
