    Reading from Website

      Hello Everyone!

       

      Is it possible to grab the contents of a webpage and store the value into a variable?  We have a script that generates one line of text for a correlating inDesign file on our webserver.  Rather than having to our website and copy/paste the line into their inDesign file, it would be wonderful to automate this task by being able to have a script fetch this line.  Is there any documentation explaining a method to grab the contents of a file (in my case a webpage) or does anyone know how to accomplish something like this?

       

      Thanks in advance!
