Is it possible? Is there a function for which you can take in a URL as a parameter and perhaps generate a file that contains the corresponding web page? Supposing I had saved a web page as a .htm file beforehand, I'd easily be able to do this. But here it is assumed that I have no such file in the working directory. In fact, I want to know if I can do this at runtime.
Here is an example to demonstrate possible purposefulness of this:
A user wants to know if the word "Business" can be found anywhere on Google's homepage, that is: http://google.com
The first step would be to convert Google's homepage to a file.
The next step would be to search that file for "Business".
