[REBOL] Re: Can REBOL change HTML of a web page?

From: oliveirard::yahoo::com::br at: 2-Apr-2005 14:03

Well... First I would like to thank all the attention you guys are giving to me. Sice my doubt maybe quite isn't a REBOL's issue, you're being so kind. Other foruns wouldn't even give me an answer. Then, I will try to answer Anton, inetw3 and Ingo in this e-mail, ok? Anton, first I was looking for a proxy to do this. I choosed squid ( because it's free and can act as a transparent proxy, which prevents me from having to update each browser configuration to send the requests through it. I was wondering I could program something like a module for squid that could make the adjustments to the pages. But unfortunately, it can't be done. As in, "neither squidGuard nor Squid can be used to filter/censor/edit text inside documents or embeded scripting languages". Although I could try to build a proxy that does that, as you suggest, it will be extremely error prone. I'd like to reuse things. As I was trying with squid. Anyway, my intentions for this program is wide enough to congestion the proxy server. There I thought it should be done on the client-side. inetw3, as you said, "No matter how you intercept the html data, something must be written in the html to start this process; cgi, asp, php, perl, javascript, etc.". But that's the problem: I don't want to change the original HTML pages on the web servers, like inserting <object> tags. I hope there's a way. Ingo, my last hope of doing this on the client-side was building an extension for Firefox. I know there will be a lost in compatibility (since MANY still use IE), but I'm almost accepting that as it's free. And your suggestion about greasemonkey was great! I don't know why yet, but the "options" for the extension isn't working. Everything there is disabled. Anyway, I will take a good look at it's code. Thank you all guys! If any other suggestion comes, it's VERY WELCOME. Best wishes, Rodrigo Anton Rolls wrote:
