Hi I have used Curl to obtain a webpage (stored in a variable called $result). Within this webpage I just want to obtain specific content that is within a certain DIV tag. Here is the part of the page that contains the DIV tag that I am interested in:
<div id="bookInfo"> <table> <tr> <td><b>Title:</b> </td> <td>OLIVER TWIST</td> </tr> <tr> <td><b>Author:</b> </td> <td>CHARLES DICKENS</td> </tr> <tr> <td><b>Publisher:<b/> </td> <td>PUFFIN</td> </tr> <tr> <td><b>Published Date:</b></td> <td>27-MAR-2002</td> </tr> <tr> <td><b>PRICE:</b> </td> <td>8.99</td> </tr> </table> </div>
What I want to do is store the title, author, date etc into a variable. For example I want a $title variable that holds 'OLIVER TWIST', an $author variable that holds 'CHARLES DICKENS' and so on. Also for the date published, I just want the last 4 digits, i.e the year.
I have been looking into things like PHP DOM but I dont know how I can first obtain just this DIV tag and then just the specific content within it. Hope someone can help. Thanks
