Re: Web Page Watcher

Ok, I have considered it now and it would be fairly easy to accomplish. I am not sure it would be valuable though. There is a significant amount of data in the headers that is different every time the page is called. Are there particular fields that are only updated when the content of the page has changed? Or were you looking for something else completely?

For anyone who is interested, the script will watch any number of

modes of watching. The first simply compares the page you are seeing
now with the one you saw the last time you looked. The second method
only compares the links within the page.

Have you considered just comparing HTTP headers?
