In case anyone is interested, I've written a web scraping example using the Ethercard library, (for enc28J60 based modules)

Ethercard has recently been updated to be able to retrieve a whole web pages, in 512byte (packet size) chunks.

I've written written some functions to search for a specific marker string within the web page, which are designed to work across packets to find the target text on a normal web page.

I've posted an example which retrieves my current weather conditions for Melbourne Australia

Full details are on by blog at http://www.rogerclark.net/?p=499

I'm keen to improve the code, so if it doesn't work for specific web pages, please feel free to leave a comment on the blog and I'll take a look at the problem

Nice. Do you think it can coexist with some Cosm client application ?
