how do i EXTRACT the unfettered HTML source of current page

Post by awakebutnot » Wed Sep 28, 2005 10:20 pm

subject is self descriptive:

how do i EXTRACT the unfettered HTML source of current page to my current scripting language, as, say, a string, called x.

This would actually simplify what i need, since I can do all of the string parsing myself...

Thx,
Austin

With the current version (V4.31) you can use SAVEAS TYPE=HTM to download the page as HTML file and then load it into your script.

With version V5.0 (beta release date is in early October) you will have a command to transfer the complete page directly into your script as string.

If you are already on our iOpus mailing list, you will be notified when the next release is available. If you are not on our mailing list, you can sign up so that you receive the notification. The sign-up form is available at

Note: If you purchase the current Version 4.31 now ( http://www.iopus.com/store ) or did already purchase V4.x in the last 12 months, you can upgrade to Version 5 at no charge once the new version is available.
