I would like some advice as to the best way to retrieve data from a web page? I intend to use the data for personal reports on dive conditions in my area.
All help and advice is always appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
Ideally, the site that serves that web page also provides a machine-friendly way to view the data. That would usually be in the form of a web service. That's probably the easiest way. Without that, you'd have to scrape the data from the web page. See screen scraping and web scraping.
