problem

hi friends,

I am anil. I have begining level experience of c++ so I need ur advice.
I have a problem for all think tanks in the group. what i want is

1. Access a web page (html) say ebay's page for particular item (I need
to access different pages for several items approx. 1500)
2. Save that page in comp memory or on disk for processing
3. I am not sure if I can process that html in c++ or need to convert
to txt first
4. Extract specific information with date time n store them on disk for
further processing
5. I need to repeat above process for 1500 items with no time gap
(means i want to check web page again within seconds to check any
update n capture that update)
6. I need further calculation on that data stored from above process
7. First priority is data accuracy
8. Second is minimum time gap

things i stated above is possible with c++ or vb ?

thanx n regards

A word of caution is called for here in that you need to be aware that
you will probably be infringing on copyright by grabbing data from
other peoples web sites unless they specifically grant you permission
to do so.

You could end up in a lot more trouble than you bargained for if you
haven't checked out the legal implications of doing what you're trying
to do so I'd suggest you look at that side of things before investing
your time and efforts into the mechanics of how you can do it.

Hi,

Thanx for the concern. :) However The site I want to access or the
information can be access by anyone its totally transparent. Just like
microsoft, people who control information either dont want others to
know or they dont know how to use it. I want to use this information
for my own system. I can get this information later in time but i want
quick n effective way to capture data then perform my calculation
(means automated) also make that data available to others who share my
interest. In this era u will agree with me that its not time but
information on time is money.

First problem is to download webpage from website continously (means
within few second) for approx. 1500 items. extract specific data n copy
that data to file then delete that webpage

I can handle calculation part myself

2nd problem is to send that extracted data to users who may want this
data (saving their computing power to extract data)

all this within shortest possible span of time
