Wanted: Delphi source code for a website scraper/data collector needs to download images, and handle multiple pages.
1) Delphi 7 or 2007 (No .net - Win32 only)
2) No third party VCL's except LMDTools (comes on Delphi CD)
3) I will require source code.
4) Source code needs to be commented in English, so I can modify it
Hi Have had a couple of PMs, asking for procedural clarity, you will/should probably know better than me, what needs done, if not you probably should not bid.
I invisage this would be a 4 step process... .. but if you can make it more efficient... that will be good
1) get HTML page(s)
either download page(s) or load into TWebbrowser
2) parse the HTML for data sections
3) extract item data from data sections (at this point storing data in a record will be fine, no db required at this point) including downloading image for item extracted.
You can use this page as an example if you need one:
