    download files

    Can I use javascript to get a file from a https website and save it? Or at least read the source of the document and put it in a variable?

    what i need is data hidden in the source. I also have the capability to use PHP, but PHP (without the cURL library) cannot handle connections to https sites. I cannot modify the server. I'm just trying to think of a way to get the data off this site.
