Website
hi everyone... I would be greatly thankful if i could get help in a matter. It so happens that i have to visit a website everyday and look for specific words or numbers in the page.It is related to my work,and i have a long list of numbers which are my appointment numbers.If the number(4-5 digit) is present on any day,i have to go to office on that day. Could you please tell me if there is any way or software available which can store the numbers and search for them in the page and tell me if amy number is present. The website has loads of numbers ,and the find function(ctrl + f) is also not useful since i have about 100 numbers(4-5 digit) to search. Thank you

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Have you tried google desktop? Once you load the page, you can fire up google desktop, and it would be able to search through that page as well, since it is in the cache.

My tools of choice: wget and grep.
wget to fetch the web page
grep to do the searches

Your regular expressions (what you tell grep to look for) should be simple enough, but any easy way to write regular expressions is to use is Regex Coach (http://www.weitz.de/regex-coach/).
