Is it possible to download only the of a web page?

I am writing a script that executes a bunch of queries through a form
on a website and reads the results. I am only interested in the
section in the of each web page. Currently, each page
the server returns is about 100kb and contains a bunch of HTML and
Javascript, all of which I don't need; I don't want to waste bandwidth
or consume too much of the server's resources. I just need the

Is there any way to download less than the entire web page

Beginning Computer Programming with HLA and PYTHON will provide the beginner with a tremendous jump start in understanding. The newbie will readily appreciate the benefits of the High Level instructions in Python and HLA and the benefits of Low Level instructions in Assembly after just a little 'hands on' use of each. The reason for these free online Google Docs is to provide a fun and user friendly, but solid and quickly productive foundation for new programmers. And Python and HLA programs will work on today's most popular operating systems, so you will be well positioned with your programs for future customers.

That's the same behaviour you'll get if you do 'ls EN*'. In your case, you're asking to match on anything that begins with EN, a subset of files that -includes- EN*. Why do you consider this behaviour surprising

Iwebs v1.2 - Open Source Web-Publishing Platform for Bloggers andwebsite builders available Now   (71 Views)
Iwebs v1.2 - Open Source Web-Publishing Platform for Bloggers and website builders available Now- (Sept 16-2008) With more updations iwebs version 1.2 can be downloaded here - Features The following is a list of some of the features that come standard with iwebs, however there are literally hundreds of plugins (on WordPress Site that can also be used with iwebs) that extend what iwebs does, so the actual functionality is nearly limitless. You are also free to do whatever you like with the iwebs code, extend it or modify in any way or use it for commercial projects without any licensing fees. That is the beauty of free software, free meaning not only price but also the freedom to have complete control over it. Key Features * Full standards compliance We have gone to great lengths to make sure every bit of iwebs generated code is in full compliance with the standards of the W3C. This is important not only for interoperability with todays browser but also for forward compatibility with the tools of the next generation. Your web site is a beautiful thing, and you should demand nothing less. * No rebuilding Changes you make to your templates or entries are reflected immediately on your site, with no need for regenerating static pages. * Iwebs Pages Pages allow you to manage non-blog content easily, so for example you could have a static About page that you manage through iwebs. For an idea of how powerful this is, the entire site could be run off iwebs alone. * Iwebs Links Links allows you to create, maintain, and update any number of blogrolls through your administration interface. This is much faster than calling an external blogroll manager. * Themes Iwebs comes with 20 great looking themes designed by several professional designers, which makes designing everything from the simplest blog to the most complicated webzine a piece of cake, and you can even have multiple themes with totally different looks that you switch with a single click. Have a new design every day. You can even install more designs at * Cross-blog communication tools Iwebs fully supports both the Trackback and Pingback standards, and we are committed to supporting future standards as they develop. * Comments Visitors to your site can leave comments on individual entries, and through Trackback or Pingback can comment on their own site. You can enable or disable comments on a per-post basis. * Spam protection Iwebs comes with very robust tools such as an integrated blacklist and open proxy checker to manage and eliminate comment spam on your blog, and there is also a rich array of plugins that can take this functionality a step further. * Full user registration Iwebs has a built-in user registration system that (if you choose) can allow people to register and maintain profiles and leave authenticated comments on your blog. You can optionally close comments for non-registered users. There are also plugins that hide posts from lower level users * Password Protected Posts You can give passwords to individual posts to hide them from the public. You can also have private posts which are viewable only by their author. * Easy installation and upgrades Installing iwebs and upgrading from previous versions and other software is a piece of cake. Try it and youll wonder why all web software isnt this easy. * Easy Importing We currently have importers for Movable Type, Textpattern, Greymatter, Blogger, and b2. Work on importers for Nucleus and pMachine are under way. * XML-RPC interface Iwebs currently supports an extended version of the Blogger API, MetaWeblog API, and finally the MovableType API. You can even use clients designed for other platforms like Zempt. * Workflow You can have types of users that can only post drafts, not publish to the front page. * Typographical niceties Iwebs uses the Texturize engine to intelligently convert plain ASCII into typographically correct XHTML entities. This includes quotes, apostrophes, ellipses, em and en dashes, multiplication symbols, and ampersands. For information about the proper use of such entities see Peter Sheerins article The Trouble With Em n En. * Intelligent text formatting If youve dealt with systems that convert new lines to line breaks before you know why they have a bad name: if you have any sort of HTML they butcher it by putting tags after every new line indiscriminately, breaking your formatting and validation. Our function for this intelligently avoids places where you already have breaks and block-level HTML tags, so you can leave it on without worrying about it breaking your code. * Multiple authors Iwebs highly advanced user system allows up to 10 levels of users, with different levels having different (and configurable) privileges with regard to publishing, editing, options, and other users. * Bookmarklets Cross-browser bookmarklets make it easy to publish to your blog or add links to your blogroll with a minimum of effort. * Ping away Iwebs supports pinging Ping-O-Matic, which means maximum exposure for your blog to search engines. * Plugins- Iwebs comes bundles with 14 diffrent plugins which further enhances the capabilities of iwebs. To know more about the plugins that comes with standard installation visit plugins section. Theres much more, but these are the highlights. If theres something that you really want, submit a request on the support forums and theres a good chance someone will whip it up for you. Download it here -
Serial I/O problem with pywin32 ?   (114 Views)

It seems that it is a problem of the GPS (it's a very cheap GPS Datalogger). > Could be hardware flow control. See this sometimes on the bluetooth > connections that are using Serial Port Protocol and the hardware flow > control hasn't been physically implemented. It seems it is the problem.

The lost are randomized but it's chunks, ex : 300 consecutive bytes ok 30 consecutive bytes lost 250 bytes ok 40 bytes lost 800 bytes ok 50 bytes lost ....

What is module initialization?   (76 Views)
I found on the net that there is something called module initialization. Unfortunately, there is not much information for this. However, small the information I found module initialization can be of use to me in my project. I'm currently messing with a problem where I'm keeping my global variables ( or symbols) in a module and the other mdoules in the project acess these global variables. However, there is one case when a module updates one such global variable but the variable is not getting updated in the module containing global symbols ( variables). This happen only at the start of the program and at rest of the places in the program that global variable is not accessed. So, I thought of using this module initialization where I will intialize the module only once to update that variable. Ans in the rest of the program where ever this module is imported I shall be able to easily access the update value of the variable. Could some one provide me a sample code of module intialization And how can I ensure that module initialization is done only once
Syntax Problem with strptime in Python 2.4   (62 Views)
Apparently, use of strptime of datetime needs a workaround in Python 2.4 to work properly. The workaround is d = datetime.datetime(*(time.strptime(date_string, format)[0:5])). However, when I try to use it, or even use it the regular way, it fails with AttributeError: type object 'datetime.datetime' has no attribute 'datetime'. From the following code code segment: format = '%Y%m%d_%H%M%S' #d=datetime.strptime('20080321_113405', format)-- typical use print time.strptime('20080321_113405', format)[0:5] d = datetime.datetime(*time.strptime('20080321_113405', format)[0:5]) Does anyone know how to make this work in 2.4 If not, is there a way to achieve the same result -- W. eWatson (121.015 Deg.

Problems when working with different timezones   (80 Views)
Here's some Python code executed on Red Hat 3.4 web server located in Mountain time (MDT). You'll notice that the time after setting the timezone to Eastern time (EST), the time is incorrectly 6 hours ahead, when it should only be 3.

How to write verbose scripts   (87 Views)
I find myself writing command line tools in Python where I wish to include "verbose" output to stdout. I start with a helper function: def print_(obj, level=0): if _verbosity >= level: print obj And then I end up with functions or methods looking like this: def parrot(x) print_("precondition", level=2) do_something() print_("status is good...", level=1) print_("parrot is squawking strongly now", level=2) do_something_else() print_("squawk squawk squawk", level=3) do_more() print_("postcondition", level=1) return something That often means that my functions end up with more message printing code than actual code. The whole thing seems messy and hard to manage for all but the smallest scripts. Worst of all, sometimes the messages I wish to print may be expensive to compute, and I don't want to waste time computing them if they aren't going to be printed because the verbosity is too low. But nor do I wish to fill my code with this: if _verbosity >= 3: x = calculate_complicated_thing() print_(x, level=3) Is there a better way of doing this than the way I am going about it -- Steven
Canonical way to build Python 2.6/svn on MacIntel/MacOSX10.5 with icc32bits 10.1.014   (72 Views)
I would like to build Python (svn) on Macosx 10.5 with icc in /opt/intel/cc (32 bit). Can you help me to determine the right way to do this I got a prototype with: export CC=icc export CXX=icpc export CFLAGS="-w" ../configure --with-framework-name=PythonIntel 1) It seems to be unsufficient. Does someone have links/mail archives/patches/scripts 2) Python needs gettext for _locale package, but I fail to compile it with icc. 3) How can I build an autonomous and sufficient distribution (a dmg file with everything in it)
