Re: [Clip] Grab stock quotes
- Actually, windows is not a problem for me but Inernet Explorer is.
The app I am writing needs access to the internet (to get the web
pages to scrape) and approach I took required support of the HTML DOM.
Only under pain of excruciating death would I use IE.
Fortunately, as I recently posted, thanks to all the helpful posts
these past few days, I have reversed my approach and will now
do everything in NoteTab at ten times the speed and a fraction
of the effort. Thank you RegEx!
Although I will accomplish my task this time using only NoteTab,
there is a huge need for an app engine that will make leverage
apps. Accessing and mashing data from multiple domain is getting
quite common and will be more so in the future. The cross domain
scripting security problem needs to be solved.
Thanks for all your help, Art
