Hi guys. I have a php script that reads some values off a website and prints to a file every second.. The thing is, the script is always ran in my browser and I don't like that.
I want to write a c++ program that can run that script within it and write the data to a file.
If that is not possible, can I use C++ to read the contents off of a website, given the link?
Example: The php script is given the link to the website and given the elements the data is contained in. It reads that into an array and prints the data to a file.. If the data is between two div tags with a unique ID, the php file will look for the div tags with that ID and print it to an array.. Can I do this in C++??
TLDR: Can C++ Run PHP scripts/files? Can C++ Read data from a website without opening my browser?
