    Question Retrieving a specific string in a web, webpagepage.

    Hello!

    I am writing that program and I am still trying to figure how to get the computer to do it... I would like to write a program that would search a page and give me as an output all the strings containing let's say "string". I tried to use pointers but to no avail.
    People just tell me that pointers are the best ideas, but it's really difficult for me, especially that I did not really nail that part.
    lease would you help me or tell me another way to do it?
    Thank you very much for your time!

    If pointers are too difficult, then C might not be the right choice for you. You can try python: it has very good support for searching webpages (google "python & urllib")
    On the other hand: pointers aren't that difficult to understand. So, it might be worth it to give it another try.

    On Windows, just use Win32 api (30 secondes to do it... (COM, Inet, etc))
