    Exclamation CURL inside Loop

    Hey Guys,

    I need a little help with this. I have a CURL function set up and I'm trying to collect multiple order numbers from a textarea and run them through the curl to get results for each order.

    I'm not sure how the loop should be formatted to return / contain the results for each order.

    I need $get_token to contain the results for each order number in the textarea.

    Any help on this would be appreciated!

    function downloadUrl($Url, $ch){
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $Url);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 0);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_REFERER, "https://website here");
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERAGENT, "MozillaXYZ/1.0");
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, 0);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 10);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);
    $output = curl_exec($ch);
    return $output;
    function login($user,$pass){
    $ch = curl_init();
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, 'https://website here login'); //login URL
    curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
    curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $postData);
    curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIEJAR, 'cookie.txt');
    curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);
    $store = curl_exec ($ch);
    return $ch;
    function getOrder($order_n,$ch){
         $order_url = downloadUrl("Website here", $ch);
         $stripped_html = str_replace("\t", '', $order_url);
             return $stripped_html;
    if ($_POST['submit'] == "Search Orders"){
    $order_n = trim($_POST['orders']);
         if ($order_n == ""){
    $err = "<font color=\"red\"><i>Error: You must provide an order number!</i></font><br />";
    $lines = explode("\n", $order_n);
         foreach( $lines as $line ){
         $user = "username";
         $pass = "password";
                     $do_order = getOrder($line,$ch);
         $token = explode('&quot;EC-', $do_order);
         $token = explode('&quot;', $token[1]);
         $token = strip_tags($token[0]);
         $get_token = "EC-$token";

    It sounds like you've done all the hard work (getting the data) and now want to store it nicely?

    I'd add the data in to an array, using the token as an array key.lo

    In your foreach loop, add the following at the bottom:

    PHP Code:
    $data[$token] = $doOrder

    Sidenote: Look into cURLs multiple Url download which makes the requests as slow as the slowest mdownload if you feel you'd like to optimize the script instead of having the script fetch a sibgle url for every run of the loop.
