id like to get a pd set to 'read' a html page on the web. ive got it reading .txt files locally, but wondered if there's a plugin that allows pd to access files online.
what im trying to achieve is to display words from webpages in gem, ideally by reading them straight from the sites themselves. failing this, is there anything out there (apple script etc?) that can convert html pages into .txt files through a script, i.e. not manually.
e.g. if i add some words to a blog, can i somehow get those words into pd?
ive seen this done using flash, and possibly max or processing, so hoping its possible with pd!
