Thank you Voinage for writing this tutorial. Nod I am getting match result that need filtering. There are Chinese links in the results which I think might cause the script not to work. Here is my test.py
Quote:import urllib2,urllib,re

url='http://www.joost.com/epg/us/film/more/o/text/'

req = urllib2.Request(url)
req.add_header('User-Agent', 'Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.9.0.3) Gecko/2008092417 Firefox/3.0.3')
response = urllib2.urlopen(req)
link=response.read()
response.close()
match=re.compile('<li><a href="(.+?)">(.+?)</a></li>').findall(link)
print match

here is the dump

I also used a script I looked at the TV Shack plugin and found it gave good results for the page its intended for but not mine. I am thinking maybe there is a way to adapt that script to work the site I am trying to match.
Does anyone know how to use
Quote:clean4=re.sub
command?
This is what is used in the TV shack plugin to remove stuff I am wondering how to apply it to my script.
Here is a link to my progress as it happens I put it here
