Getting live data from another site.
This probably isn't possible but I thought to ask anyways. I want to create a page for me and my friends that takes live scores from the Masters golf tournament and calculates the sum of some of the players scores. I was wondering if there was someway to get these updated scores from another site to my site without me actually having to update them myself. I know a RSS feed could do this part but the thing is I'd want to take the actual data and use it to calculate scores.
See if they provide you a mechanism for getting scores or stats via web services.
A Possible Solution...
As long as you keep this to a minimum, you could create a PHP script that downloads the scores page periodically and processes the content. However excessive use could have legal implications...
Look into PHP/cURL, to download the web page and create a parsing routine to isolate the necessary information.
Hope this helps
