web based chat word grabber


Recommended Posts

I spent sometime in here reading the forum posts but I could find a similar programs pertaining to the topic.

It would be nice if anyone can guide me to a tutorial or a similar project or list of commands relating to my goal.

the goal is:

  • opening web based chat
  • automatically saving words typed by chatters and save it in a text file
  • avoiding saving duplicate words.

Any clue would guide me into the right direction would be appreciated. I am not looking for a ready answer but i won't mind though :(

Unfortunately, this subject is infinitesimally close to another more delicate topic we don't want that much see discussed here, even if it has been debated ad nauseam already.

So you want to save individual words than people input? That's a job for ... a Dictionary object! Lookup "Scripting.Dictionary" with the forum search.

This wonderful site allows debugging and testing regular expressions (many flavors available). An absolute must have in your bookmarks.
Another excellent RegExp tutorial. Don't forget downloading your copy of up-to-date pcretest.exe and pcregrep.exe here

PCRE v8.33 regexp documentation latest available release and currently implemented in AutoIt beta.

SQLitespeed is another feature-rich premier SQLite manager (includes import/export). Well worth a try.
SQLite Expert (freeware Personal Edition or payware Pro version) is a very useful SQLite database manager.

You will also find that most web based chat (that I have come across anyway) is flash or java based, and probably wont give up its content as easily as you might think.

Test it with the window info toll.

I am interested in saving the text content of flash based chat in a form of word-list. the repetition of the recorded words is very much correlated to the social , and psychological monitoring research I need to accomplish.

can you suggest keywords in google which are more pertinent to importing typed data from flash based chats.

probably if i understood the basic concept then later on I can try to automate it via auto it.
