|Subject: ||Create SAS program to find out if a webpage has changed?|
|Content-Type: ||text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1|
Say I want to to create a SAS program that finds out when a webpage changes
and then emails me if it has changed?
Can I create a program where I would have SAS look out to the internet, read
in a HTML page, then determine if there is a change on the page (if it knew
what the baseline page looked like) and then using the email proc send me an
email to say the page has changed in some way? If so is there a way to have
this program run say every 5 minutes or so automatically?
Thanks in advance for any thoughts.
