I am currently trying out Win Automation and I was wondering how it compares to the program Visual Web Ripper? I am going to buy one of them. I'm leaning towards Win Automation since it's cheaper and looks like I can do other things besides just extracting web data. Do you think I can perform all the web data scrapping I could want with windows automation?
I'm trying to learn how to do web scraping to gather phone, address ect. data from business directories. I'm finding the parser regular expression stuff a bit overwhelming--but I guess if I get good enough there isn't really anything that can't be done. Thanks in advance for any input!
