Thanks for all the hard work. It is much appreciated.
I have a simple question about webscraping. I hope I am posting it to
the right place.
I played around with the example on rosettacode.org:
(client "tycho.usno.navy.mil" 80 "cgi-bin/timer.pl"
(when (from "<BR>")
(pack (trim (till "U"))) ) )
This seems clear and I thought I understood it, but when I change it to this,
to retrieve the title from dancecentral:
(client "dancecentral.co.uk" 80 "index.html"
(when (from "<title>")
(pack (trim (till "</title>"))) ))
These are the first two characters of the title so its been partially
successful, and I can reproduce similar results for other urls.
I really want the entire title, not the title truncated.
Any ideas what I am doing wrong?
