Okay. Here's what I want to do. Basically, I want to set up a short little script so that I can pass multiple queries through multiple databases. The problem is that they're web databases _ court records, to be specific. Anybody got any good ideas on a relatively easy way to do this?

Where are you trying to put the data?

You could set something up with wget to do text files, but it would probably be very messy. You'd have to parse through the html page of the web page to get to your data.

Can you get an XML file from them instead?

The output really doesn't matter. What I'd really like to do, if possible, is set it up so that if there is a match, it generates a link. Or even just a "name" found in "database" sort of thing, so we could then search it manually.
