I’m having some trouble with the final task in my beginner PHP course.
[code]Write a program, to be called automatedExaminerArticlesInsertion.php, which can be used to automated the insertion of the articles which are mentioned in the main central column on http://www.examiner.ie/
The program should use regular expressions to extract the relevant information from the newspaper page specified. (Of course, the program should not insert any story which has the same URL as a story that is already in the database.)[/code]
I don’t know where to start with writing the php to scan the http://www.examiner.ie/ page and extract the relevent info.
The previous questions were writing simple php programs to manually enter info into a mysql DB, I was able to do them no problem.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
