Hey Everyone, I get alot of info from these forums and I finally have something to contribute. I've done alot of cURL scraping in my time and have never understood how to use or properlly implement cURL Multi Handle. And now that I do, I wont ever go back. So if you use cURL regularly to do scraping of any kind I suggest you check out this article. It does a great job of explaining how to use cURL Multi, which I havent found else where, and it provides an optimized approach as well. I cant post links.... so Google to find it. Great info. If it helps, please give me some thanks. P.S I didnt write the blog post, just sharing this great info. P.P.S I am writing up a php proxy checking script using cURL Multi, which Ill share when I'm finished.
