Ok, pretend there is a site with a page with words on it. I want to know if flash can do this. First it would look at the site, (not show the browser, and see how many times Fred is asome is used in the source code code. Then it would tell you the number of how many times it appears in a dynamic box.
Not quite sure what you mean - flash can parse if that’s what you’re asking but it’s quite slow. Depending on what you want to do it may be faster to use php to parse the url and then write the results to a swf.
see how many times Fred is asome is used in the source code code
Flash can look at text files and analyze the content, but I’m not sure it can check out people’s HTML sources.
Also, please don’t post this question more than once.
