Get source code returned by a PHP webpage (is it) ?

Recommended Posts


I'm a beginner in this specific area of coding and I need some help for a specific task.

I have this URL :


It returns a list of items for a game.

I can display the HTML content of this page by using my browser (menu "show source code"), and it gives something like this :

<!DOCTYPE html> <!--[if IE 8]> <html class="no-js lt-ie9" lang="en" > <![endif]--> <!--[if gt IE 8]><!--> <html class="no-js" lang="en" > <!--<![endif]--> <head> <meta charset="utf-8"> <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width"> <title>search results</title> <script>DOMAIN = "poe.trade";</script>  <script type="text/javascript" src="/static/gen/packed.4fad197e.js"></script>   <script type="text/javascript" src="/static/gen/explicit.d47a5c47.js"></script>    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/static/gen/packed_dark.7cdcca18.css">   <script async='async' src='https://www.googletagservices.com/tag/js/gpt.js'></script> <script>
    window.VM_API = window.VM_API || [];
    window.biddr360 = window.biddr360 || {};
    window.biddr360.eu = false;


Now, I'd like to write a small code in autoit to automatically read the URL and return the content of the HTML in a string.

Question 1 : How can I do that (I've tried with wget but all I could get was garbage/unreadable text) ?

Question 2 : How can I manage correcty the UTF characters (some IGN are in korean as you can see in the items list) ?

Thank you !
