Capture a web page and return a single value??
United Parcel Service has changed the way it quotes rates online, and it has become a little more complex for a simple ecommerce application.
I have a model page at www.PrescottSpas.com/ups.php where you can put in sending/receiving information and UPS will calculate the rate for ground service.
*** If you are outside the US, try Orginating your "package" from Prescott, 86301 and shipping to Flagstaff, 86001. *****
The result of this page is the display of the UPS.com webpage with the shipping cost.
Instead of displaying that UPS page, I would like to "capture" the webpage and parse it, looking for:
<!-- Displaying the service costs for each package in shipment --> <td valign="top" nowrap><div class="modHeadpad">7.25</div> </td>
1) how to I "capture" that page (preventing it from displaying to the user)?
2) how do I parse the page to retrieve only the shipping amount?
