I'm no pro but this should get you started. if you are looking for a 'get
request. 'Post requires a slight modification.
a: b: c: d: 0
bump: func [
a: a + 1
if a > 9 [
b: b + 1
if b > 9 [
c: c + 1
if c > 9 [
c: 0 d: d + 1
e: copy ""
while [e <> "9999"] [
e: rejoin [
page: read rejoin [http://www.thesite.dom/cgi-bin/mycgi.cgi?value= e]
; parse page to get info you are looking for
bump [a b c d]
You will need to find the URL for the form and modify the line that starts
with 'page. There is a space after the equal sign and before the 'e.
I have little doubt that the real maestro's could do better in fewer lines,
but it should get you rolling.

Subject: [REBOL] Request for info via website
> Dear everyone,
> I have just tried out Rebol and am amazed with the amazing stuff it can do
with just a few lines of programming. My intention is to programme a script
that can automatically retrieve information from a website without me having
to manually key in the query parameters. Basically, there is this web page
allows users to search the dates a 4-digit number has appeared in the past
draws. As I do not want to key in all 10000 permutations of 4-digit numbers.
I like Rebol to loop and submit search requests automatically on this web
page and save the returned results.
> I have browsed through the existing srcipts in the library but can't seem
to find/realise any that could help me with this. Anyone care to give your
comments or advice on how I should embark on this project? Any comments is
