How Save only the URL of a visited page

Post by att » Tue Aug 19, 2008 2:47 pm

Hi all,
This is a very nice tool. Been reading, couldn't find the answer to the below.

SET !ERRORIGNORE YES
SET !DATASOURCE sites.csv
SET !DATASOURCE_COLUMNS 1
SET !DATASOURCE_LINE {{!LOOP}}
URL GOTO={{!COL1}}
PAUSE

Is there a way to write the already visited URL to an output file (for example visited_sites.csv) ?
I just need to save the visited URL !, I am using FF, on a Fedora box.
Thanks for any help.

Thanks very much Brian,
How would I go about writing this to a .csv ?
I've tried
SAVEAS TYPE=MHT FOLDER=/root/Desktop/imacro FILE=+{{!NOW:ddmmyyyy}}
SAVEAS TYPE=MHT FOLDER=/root/Desktop/imacro FILE=homepage_current
SAVEAS TYPE=HTM FOLDER=* FILE=+_{{!NOW:yyyymmdd_hhnnss}}

none of them seem to work !.
Thanks for your help

SAVEAS TYPE=EXTRACT FOLDER=c:\ FILE=URL.CSV

This will save the information saved with "SET !EXTRACTADD {{!URLCURRENT}}" into the file C:\URL.csv.

Hope this helps.

Thanks very much Brian,
It's the perfect solution, I thought “SAVEAS TYPE=EXTRACT” would write a lot of information !
This is perfect.
Thanks.

Note: Instead of
SET !EXTRACTADD {{!URLCURRENT}}

please use

ADD !EXTRACT {{!URLCURRENT}}.

This does exactly the same, but the EXTRACTADD command is deprecated and should be avoided for new macros.

If I link to add more than one link in a CSV file?

I have to add more link in the same file in a column. Is possibile to do something like this?

EDIT: It works and I didn't touch anything! :)
