Is there a way to get the output of an external web page or file, and set a variable to its contents?
I can send it to be viewed in the internal browser using link(), and I can read a file that is local in several different fashions, but not one off of a web server.
Export and Import are not doing it for me. They seem to expect a specific file format, but I'm just trying to deal with text. I'm not sure, but they also seem to expect the external server to be hosting a running byond world, which I can't do on the server I will be using.
Browse() also does not do what I need, as it won't take an external site as an argument.
I'm also looking for a way to send an http request to a server without displaying the results in the browser.
In case you're curious, I'm trying to develop my saved rating systems for chess, and want to use a ColdFusion server to save and retrieve scores. So any other suggestions would be helpful here for that.
