    Hey!

    Great forum guys!!

    I'm looking for a specific type of program. I don't know what it is called, so I can't just google it. I need to be able to look at a company's website and extract select types of information from their webpages. For instance. I would like to be able to search an law firm's website and pull out all the names, phone numbers, email addresses, and certain types of other data for their attorneys based on a single page template.

    I've looked at data / web / text mining software, but the complexity is disheartening and I'm not even sure that's what I need. Even if that's what I need, I don't want to get a program that is overengineered for my purpose. I don't need data analysis, I just need a listing of certain types of data. Something to look at the source code for each page and extract only the data that I want.

    Does anyone have a program suggestion? I'd like to be able to output it to a database or a spreadsheet right from the program if possible.

    Thanks so much guys!!!!!!
