I need to extract info from this game site for my personal site: http://my.uo.com/cgi-bin/guilds.pl?g=f68cc067f7061ebe:4
how do I incorporate the list of guild members into a jump menu form on MY site, so that I don't have to redo the menu manually, ie: I want my site to automatically extract the list from their site and create my own jump menu from the data.

I wonder if you could some sort of web fetching for that. Check out hotscripts for some possible ideas.

You could use PHP to read the whole page into a variabul. Then regex the hell out of it untill you have what you need.

Just an Idea.

nice to see you all agree....so it's PHP (a script?), then standard HTML to strip it down? I'm only a hair beyond doing cheezy auto-build sites from hosting companies, so there may be more questions to follow.....

qaddamage,

here's the PHP code:

code:
$mem = join('', file('http://my.uo.com/cgi-bin/guilds.pl?g=f68cc067f7061ebe:4'));

$re= '<a href="http:\/\/my\.uo\.com\/cgi-bin\/my_chars\.pl[^"]+">([^<]+)<\/a>, ([^<]+)<br>';
if (preg_match_all("/$re/is", $mem, $members))
{
echo "$members[1][$i]-$members[2][$i]\n";
}



enjoy,

that's outstanding! I wouldn't have been able to pick that one apart on my own, thanks for taking the time to analyze the code on that site to figure out what I needed
