View Full Version : stripping a whole website?

03-11-2009, 11:29 AM

Just wanted to know if I wanted to give the option for users on a web to type in a web address and then this would then strips the whole website. The user could then be able to choose which data they wanted i.e. if they only wanted sport i.e. football.

Would I use preg match i.e. preg match all

Is this possible?

thanks in advance

It is possible, but it depends on how well formed the targetted website is.
Anyway, this is called scraping and it is quite unethical.
