    Hi,

    I have a standalone application running on a server. I wish to scrape data from this, and then post it on a website.

    Can you reccomend any application or service capable of doing this?

    As far as I know there aren't any standard scraper solutions out there that you can modify to fit your website without changing any code.

    If you have any PHP knowledge doing this through cURL is very easy.

    Be careful with yahoo, they removed me from their index when I was scrapping them daily.
