Forum OpenACS Development: Search robots
Do we have any sort of web content searching robot, (i.e. bot, wanderer, spider or crawler) within OACS pkg library (repository history)?
If you are harvesting info from other websites, which is a subset of what you are asking, there is a library to help convert messy html content into usable text in Q-Forms package. See: q-forms/tcl/form-helper-procs
