Daily Dilbert Cartoons with PHP Page Scraping
  Posted by: AceBHound on Mar 13th, 2004 1:04 PM
Have you ever wanted daily cartoon strips on your web site? Well now you can! Check out the new tutorial on Daily Dilbert Cartoons. We use PHP to scrape the newest Dilbert comic every day and store it locally. The image is only downloaded from their site once a day, saving bandwidth & allowing your site to serve the image faster!

This is a great example of how to begin parsing web pages for content (of which there is very sparse information on).. even if you aren't interested in coding, read today's comic!
