page, scan for certain data, extract the data to a disk file, drill
down from link to link, etc.

know what language you are speaking. :-) The Clip Code is very
powerful: you can extract lines, between tags, links,
directories/subs, all kinds of stuff. The answer to your question
is probably yes, it can. But, you need to sign up for the Clips
list and/or the HTML list; the Clips list might be better, but
you may need to reword what you want to do a little clearer.
Please read the following...
------------ Discussion mailing lists at YahooGroups ------------
You may sign up for the different discussion mailing lists from
either of the links below. We use YahooGroups for the lists.
_Please_ read the following if you decide to sign up to see what
list to send messages to; it is very important and please also
use a descriptive Subject: line! Delete text from your replies
that is not needed to understand your reply and keep the
conversation clean! :)
If you sign up for any of the discussion lists, please *_do not_*
post questions about NoteTab *Clips* and other scripting languages
(such as *RegExp*, PERL, etc.) on the NoteTab Basic list. Use the
Clips or Scripts list for them.
More difficult tasks should be posted on the Clips or Scripts
lists. HTML should be posted on the ntb-HTML list and off topic
discussion takes place on the ntb-OffTopic list. The MailBag
Assistant, Easy Thumbnails, Easy Imager, and Album Express lists
are for discussion of those programs.
The most important thing to remember is please leave the NoteTab
Basic list for the *_very basic_* use of NoteTab. The other lists
are a lot more flexible, for instance: Clips and RegExp can be
used and are welcomed on the HTML list. Thanks!!!
Discussion mailing list subscribing and un-subscribing:
If you are already signed up for the NoteTab Basic list, there are
links in the YahooGroups footer to get to the Clips and Off Topic

clipboard feature and copy everything you want that way. Under document
use as pasteboard. Everything you copy will then be put in the open
For a more advanced procedure, as Jody said, go to the clips list.
