Hello, and Thank You for choosing JustAnswer.comMy name is ***** ***** I am reviewing your question now, please stand by for 1 or 2 minute for reply.
Are you talking about an RSS feed that some websites have enabled, that you can get data from on a regular basis?
Or are you referring to some other data you want to capture from the website?
Is it text? is it a file?
well I KNOW its going to be data.....what else could it be?
What I'm asking....is what FORM the data is taking?
Do you have to capture text? (this would be in the form of plain text) or are you capturing a file? (this would be in the form of a file that has attributes such as file extension)
What data are you wanting to capture.....can you give me an example......can you SHOW me an example?
okay....sothe task would be to SELECT the text needed.......copy and paste it to a quarkX file.
Sounds simple....but you will likely need to create a script, or multiple scripts.
yeah the copy/paste WOULD be automated.....it wouldn't be a manual process.
See....you would write a script that does the following tasks.
navigate to website, enter the URL in address bar.
use the positioning metrics to position the copy parameter. like longitude and latutude for a website.....select the text, and copy
Open new project/file for QuarkX
Paste clipboar data
Save file ( using basic metrics, like the date and time for the file name)
hat is the progression of the scheduled tasks and scripts that would need to take place.....or very similar to this, some deviation would be expected.
a task of this nature....you kind of need a mix of talent.
Somebody who has mastered scheduling tasks on a mac.
somebody who has mastered scripts.
somebody who has HTML and quark familiarity.
Probably take a couple people to accomplish the task.
One being an expert in the task scheduler, and script creation and ofcourse testing and debugging.
and another person to take that data captured and enter it into quarkx file .
again might be using scripts too.
So.....it probably wont be a single person....but rather a couple people collaborating.
But that doesn't mean a single person could NOT do it.....its just rare to find somebody with that broad of a skill set.
I honestly think a small executable program written specifically for this task in a common language.....say C+, or just C.
there would e a lot of interdepnddencies that would go along by using multiple scrits and tasks.
So...I would reccomed you find a software developer......they have a team of people who can tackle this and spit you out a custome program that does what you want......and is all inclusive.
That would be better, that a bunch of scripts.
a custom program that allows you to adjust the metrics.....like the amount of times the data is captured....daily....hourly.....weekly...etc.
A script would be locked in.....and not easy to adjust.
Also, a custom program could be created in such a way, that it allows the user to make changes on the fly if needed.....in a user friendly way....unlike scrpits.
