BeownReclise is a programmable web spider. Scan a web site and retrieve from it the information you need. You could scan a Real Estate web site and collect all of the agent addresses, phone numbers and emails, and place all this data into a tab delimited database file. Then import this data in your Excel application for example.
I downloaded the trial version (1.62), and I must be missing something obvious because I can't get a basic script to run. Any suggestions?
When I click "compile," I briefly see a status bar appear in "scripts status." The status bar disappears, and the status window returns to its empty state. When I click "run," the same thing happens. There is no prompt. There is no output. The script I'm trying is from the documentation:
WebPage = Input('Source Viewer', 'Enter a URL to view...', 'http://');
if WebPage = nothing then Terminate;
Link = New(URL);
if not Link.Get(WebPage) then begin
Display('Error', Link.ErrorText, IconStop);
if Link.ServerCode >= 400 then begin
Display('Error', Link.ServerText, IconStop);
The issue for me turned out to be the comments that were in my script, above the code I pasted in my forum post. Unfortunately, I saved over my comment-bearing copy of the script and I don't recall where I got the example script that originally contained those comments. When I deleted the whole commented chunk, the program worked as expected.
