    I am thinking of coding some script for myself. I want the script to automatically download all the images of a thread of a vbulletin forum on my computer. And, one more thing the images are need to be clicked before they can be downloaded because they are hosted on some paid image host. In what language will it be easy to code this sort of script?

    it will be easiest if you get somebody else to code it, I think there is even a firefox addon that can do what you want.

    Start with vb.net - vb because its syntax is easier than others for beginners and .net because it has the tools you need in one place.
    2 approaches:

    • You will be using the browser components to visit the site and do the click and dl (slow but straightforward)
    • You will be using http to emulate the traffic happening behind the click and dl (fast and low on resources + easily thread-able)
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    You could use a number of languages. There is no "easy" programming language to learn unless you can catch on to things really fast and have the mindset for what needs to be done.

    Thanks for replying. I might learn some things, can you suggest some learning materials. I want to do it with using javascript because I think most of these sort of scripts are wriiten using javascript.
