Quote from: "uk_skinner"Here is the scenario: 1) A small exe to create a small text file list all the movie ID after you download the movie RSS (the first one provided by ZapMe1). As you can see the movie ID is after http://www.movie-gazette.com/cinereviews in the RSS script. 2) Let's say you are reading the movie RSS and you would like to see the review then you tap a small icon (a new one ,"Review") then trigger a exe call EzDownload to download the review.html then ask IE to open it.
Quote from: "ZapMe1"This sounds like it should work fine !! I knew you could do it UK !! Question1: Would the movie text file contain all of the movie ID's of the ones you want to see reviews from, and can this list be changed when new movies are released, or if you want to add more to the list ??Question2: Would a new/ seperate .exe for ezdownload need to be created for each review that you wish to look at ??Great Work UK !!
Quote from: "ZapMe1"UK_Skinner;Like I said, I don't know much at all about ezdownload, but please let me know how I can help this become reality !!
Quote from: "ZapMe1"UK_Skinner;I could work on the ID Extraction, but a little confused on where to start & what to do !
Quote from: "uk_skinner"But anyway, I got a file to work with. My plan is to write a simple exe to use this as source to extract ID from there. Do you know how to write PPC exe?
QuoteI got one more step close, but it will not be my "idea way". Right now, I can download the review based on the ID. But the whole thing will be bulky (about 200-250KB).
Quote from: "ZapMe1"QuoteIs this "bulk" due to the amount of detail provided X the # of reviews downloaded at one time ??If so, can just one review detail be targeted, and stored in a text ?? I guess this would create many text files !!I don't know... (just fishing !!)No, even worst.Here are what I have for now.1) An exe to extract Movie ID from your RSS script--> about 113KB-->speed ms2) I gave up to find the way to send ID inside the program. An small (3KB) exe will creat a temp file to store the RSS item number from TP. Yes, you need 32 of individual one (4KB x 32 = 128KB). -->ms3) Then ReviewDownload (5Kb) to get RSS item number then pull the MovieID from the list, then use ExDownload to download the html. -->s4) Open with IE -->forever So I lied, plus EzDownload (80KB) it ends up to 300KB. And I found out even the file downloading was fast, but IE still opened slow. So after all the efforts, I guess the "IE" as a bad guy.I will continue to see I can find a better way to do it. IMHO, it is "too" early to put in TP..Edit: Correction, the total was about 300KB..

Quote from: "ZapMe1"Seems like this may be a Dead Issue
