Gathering information from a webpage.

Hi guys, I’m new to the forums but I’ve been messing around with my Arduino for a few months now - and I have hit a snag that I hope someone can help me out with.

I just received an Ethernet shield and I quickly got it up and running, however, I was wondering how exactly I would go about selecting just the information that I want returned (in client mode).

For Example: With this HTML source (from -

…/weather-symbols/sunny.png" alt=“Clear weather icon” class=“icon”/> Clear

Temperature: 26°F

I would like to have “Clear” and “26” stored as strings… How exactly would I go about doing this?

It should be a simple problem, but I have no experience with these things. Thanks in advance for any help!

Do a search for screen scraping. Theres lots of code for other systems you could adapt.

Also there were a couple of discussions on this very subject not that long ago with some example code. Have you searched the forum?

If you can get xml from an rss feed.


Yep, I searched. Just didn't know exactly what to search for. Thanks for the point in the right direction.
