I don't know anything about coding. Is it possible to write this program I dreamed up? :headscratch:   If so, what language should it be written in? What are some good programmer sites where I might find someone to do the job?



In the search box of www.brainyquote.com, enter an AUTHOR NAME (e.g. Marilyn Monroe), <enter>



1. copy all QUOTES and the AUTHOR NAME (on brainyquote.com pages, each QUOTE is immediately followed by the AUTHOR NAME)

2. paste the QUOTES/AUTHOR NAME in a .txt file named AUTHOR NAME.TXT (e.g. marilyn monroe.txt) with an empty paragraph separating each QUOTE/AUTHOR NAME

3. follow the “Next” link at bottom of page and repeat steps 1 and 2

4. if the “Next” link is greyed-out, END PROGRAM


I run Win7 64-bit


Thanks! :prop:

Looks like a job for Perl.  




There is probably already a similar program in their archives that would just need a little tweaking.  https://www.perl.org/cpan.html
