Writing to a existing web page on the WWW

Writing to a existing web page on the WWW

I want to write (update) a file on the web (a file that I don't own). They are called Free-For-All-Links, they are CGI based and I was wondering if anyone had code, suggestions on how to write to a web file and update it. If you need more info please e-mail me at mailto:AdTrax@hotmail.com

RE: Writing to a existing web page on the WWW

Not exactly.. you don't need to write to the page, what you need to do is structure a call to the CGI with a web browser control.. like..
(note, this is only an example, i quit using the links for all script because of people like this spamming my links page).
You will get back the text of the page that tells you that your link has been added. Parse for a common phrase (do a few by hand to see what's on all of them), and write to a log file whether or not it was successful.
