help please, probably very obvious...


#1

Hi,
I'm trying to put my own code together to pull info & images from juno.co.uk (any help appreciated at this point)

I've been looking at how the discogs one works but i don't understand this;

how

findline "<a href=""
findinline "<a href=""
sayuntil """
say "|"

will produce '/release/9130' from this;

Exit Planet Dust

the syntax looks wrong, it shouldn't be able to find <a href=" as it doesn't appear anywhere, yet it works.

This is probably something really obvious but could someone explain it?

Cheers.

\ is an escape sign because " mark start and end of a string so when you search for a " in the html code you need to write "
