    Screen Scraping on the iPhone


    Hey guys,

    I'm very much new to screen scraping andn the iPhone area of development however I do have around 4 years or Windows development experience. I am trying to develop an app for a project I am doing and I need to screen scrape because the servers I am accessing are closed doing to third party requests and responses.

    Web page scraping


    You did not mention your exact development environment, IDE, etc.


    You can start with biterscripting and some of their sample scripts. Use this command.


    Code:
    script "SS_WebPageToText.txt" page("<Page URL starting with http>")

    That command will extract plain text from the web page.

    You can also scrape dynamic data such as stock prices, etc. I have posted one such script ( I can't mention the link to it ). There are also tons of other scripts posted all over the net for scraping web sites using biterscripting.

    You should always check with a site owner if it is ok to scrape their site.
