Data Mining / Data/Website Scraping

Threaded View

I'm looking for a piece of software or coding that will let me post a
to another URL, accept the response, search it for a specific
string and then let me continue processing the rest of my program.

I want to accept queries on behalf of my supplier, forward it to them
the scenes, accept their response and display it within my website.

Has anyone had any experience with this?  Is there a simple, basic
to let me do this?

I was kind of hoping I could avoid developing it myself.

You'll probably have to do it yourself.  But it shouldn't be too hard if  
your use Curl.

Seldom are you going to find something out there that lets you do
*exactly* what you want so you'll more than likely have to code it
yourself (or hire someone). What you're looking for though is very
simple in nature:

1. A form
2. Post Form
3. Search posted data
4. do "this" with data
