need help extracting data

Hello,

I am hoping to use my scripting edition to browse a website and extract some Meta Tag information from the source code. Is this possible with IMs?

Thanks.

IIM can not extract meta tag information directly. But it can extract certain parts the HTML page and return it to your script or program. You can then parse it for the specific data you need.
