This book is one of the few that attempts to gather together the range of techniques that you need to write programs that work with web sites intended to be used by humans. It also doesn't spend very much time on explaining either the language or the library.

Part I of the book is on fundamental concepts and techniques. Chapters 1 and 2 are fairly missable in that they discuss ethics and what you might do with a webbot. Chapter 3 is where things really start with a look at the simple task of downloading a web page.

This is beginners' stuff but if you don't know how to download a web page as a file in PHP then it is essential knowledge. This is also where we get a basic introduction to the CURL library.

Chapter 6 is on the very important topic of automating web form submission. This is a very common task for any bot interacting with a web site and the difficulty can range from easy to very difficult. After explaining the basics of form submission, the chapter goes on to explain how things can go wrong. Chapter 7 deals with handling the large amounts of data a bot can end up gathering.

Stay ahead with the world's most comprehensive technology and business learning platform.

It is essentially a discussion of creating file formats and using a database. You might well know most of this already as it is a fairly general programming topic.

Part II of the book is just a collection of projects - a price monitoring bot, an image capturing bot, a link verifier, a search ranking bot, an aggregator, an FTP bot, an email reader, an email sender and a bot that converts a website into a PHP function. All of the projects are well described and they are all fairly simple.

If you followed the discussion in the first part of the book and have been programming for a while then you should be capable of creating any of the examples.

Part III is about advanced topics. It opens with Chapter 17 on spiders - i. Spiders are mostly difficult because you have to decide which links to follow and have some sort of cut off to stop the process going on forever.

The discussion in this chapter is enough to get you started but no more. In practice you are going to have to do a lot more work to get something practical and you are going to have to link your spider to a database - a topic not covered.

Chapter 18 is about procurement and sniper bots - i.

The chapter does little more than explain the theory. When you think about it however the task is a difficult one and the more so because of the difficulty of testing anything you create. Can you imagine losing that site item just because your bot made a mistake? Chapters 19 and 20 are an overview of cryptography and authentication. A bit too short and basic but again enough to get you started.

Chapter 21 is on cookies and again it is more a sketch of the difficulties you are going to encounter. Chapter 22 moves on to scheduling bots and it just a look at Windows scheduling.

If you are using other operating systems then you will have to look at the documentation. For Chapter 23 we have a new idea - why not use a browser to automate things via a macro.

PDF download - PDF publishing - PDF documents platform.

Unfortunately the best macro language we have is iMacro and this isn't particularly impressive. The chapter explains its weakness, but doesn't do much to help put it right.

Chapter 24 goes deeper into using iMacro but probably not deep enough to solve all of its problems - but it is still useful to learn how to autorun a macro. The final chapter of the section is on deployment and scaling.

This is a very difficult subject and the chapter really only gets you started. Part IV is titled "Larger Considerations" which is a bit mysterious.The Elder Scrolls: You probably need to either invest in a data center or your own or rent time on something like site's AWS.

Overall this is an easy to read book that describes many of the basic ideas quite well. It should be possible for a program to read the web page, parse it, make sense of it and interact with it.

Part III is about advanced topics. In principle the web should be user and program friendly. As you discover the possibilities of web scraping, you'll see how webbots can save you precious time and give you much greater control over the data available on the Web. It turns out to be a discussion of how to hide your bot and how to harden your bot. You might well know most of this already as it is a fairly general programming topic.
