Web Scraping

Web Scraping refers to an application that processes the HTML of a Web page to extract data for manipulation such as converting the Web page to another format (i.e. HTML to WML). Web Scraping scripts and applications will simulate a person viewing a Web site with a browser. With these scripts you can connect to a Web page and request a page, exactly as a browser would do. The Web server will send back the page which you can then manipulate or extract specific information from.
