Searching web page by line

 [1/2] from: David_A_Brown::vanguard::com at: 6-May-2003 11:06

I am trying to search a web page and if I find two strings on the same line of html text perform an action: I've tried page: read /lines if find page "string1" and "string2" [write %file page] and page: read /lines if find page "string1" [ if find page "string2" [ write %file page ] ] I have a related question. How do you search sequentially thru a web page and set a Boolean value if you encounter a string then do an action if you find another string later. Thanks.

Hi, refinements are appended to the word they are refineing so read/lines spec nor read spec /lines that would help both or your attempts, another way is with 'parse page: read/lines rule: [thru "string one" thru "string two" to end] foreach line page[ if parse line rule [do-action]] to generalise to the whole page without limiting the occurances to a line. if parse read rule [do-action] On Tue, 6 May 2003 [David_A_Brown--vanguard--com] wrote:
