good reading recommendations?

6 posts in this topic

So I've decided to read up on manipulating how the website is viewed by the user when they go to it. Any recommendation on tutorials or books or anything on how to do this? I've heard that its as simple as taking the file from the temporary folder that is to be displayed on the browser and manipulating it.

Any reading in regards to this and accessing User/Password protected SSL websites would be of great help.

I know firefox greasemonkey does something similar to what im asking about.

Any information would be helpful. :)

Thanks.

Check the help file example and search the forum for other examples using _IEBodyWriteHTML().

If you want to get more raw with HTML handling, search for uses of trancexx's WinHTTP UDF.

I think you're looking for purely client-side solution, then. Because server-side, you already know how to modify HTML when a user goes to it since you know PHP. 8)

I don't think you can in AutoIt, but check out HTTP tunnel.

With your good skillset, you might investigate AJAX which is not a new language but techniques for using Javascript/HTML/DHTML to avoid page reloads. With it the client can communicate with the server without the user noticing it. Google uses this a lot. Also worth a look is Python, which is a language with clear simple syntax (no curly brace or end-of-line delimiters). I think of it as AutoIt on the Web, since it is very similar and also fun to work with. A Google search on either will give you lots of reading material that you don't need to purchase.
