Hi guys, I'm new to this site and I have a question regarding internet bots in general.
What I want to do is to use C (or php) to create a bot that will scan the internet
(perhaps log into sites, retrieve data, get links, play internet games?) on the Mac Os X.
Also, the concept of an internet bot is quite fuzzy to me right now. It seems there are two ways to implement a bot: through emulating mouse clicks and by using network functions such as cURL. Which is really used to make internet bots?
