I have a requirement to extract the html script content of the [Items Im Watching] page from eBay for a given userID. To achieve this goal manually, I have to sign-on in internet explorer, and am then directed to this webpage accordingly. I have to enter a password, which is not sent in its raw format to the eBay server via CGI, but by some securer method. It is this process that I wish to emulate, possibly having to create a relevant cookie in the process. Once the html content is received from the eBay server, I have an existing process to parse relevant information from the URL content. I would ideally like to be able to achieve this process using native WIN32 API calls from C; I already have experience of data mining using Windows Sockets API functionality. Alternatively, I would be interested in a solution written in Visual Basic 6.0, although I must stress that I want no information displayed on the screen during the collation process.
