I need a simple utility program to parse HTML pages. The utility can be written in any language and we do not need a GUI. It should run on Windows.
The utility have to parse hundreds of pages on a site to get a few values from each page and write those values into a log file. All of the pages to be parsed have the exact same structure.
In order to get the pages the program should automatically login to the site with the provided login and password. Site address, login and password must be configurable.
The program should run unattended and create a log file as a result.
