Making a bot in PHP

Post by Gogeta70 »

Well, i've decided to make a Yahoo bot in php... But i don't know what protocol it uses or anything, so do any of you guys know? Google didn't give me shit, plus this computer has so much adware it pops up like 8 windows every time i hit enter OR search in google...
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It works on my machine...

I think these might help you (for a crawler/spider at least) :
http://be.php.net/manual/en/ref.curl.php

and this module for crawling RSS and other (CVS, other XML based services/documents)
http://be.php.net/manual/en/ref.xmlrpc.php

From there on there are a sh*tload of other hints, tips and modules or packages to use that do Net::whatever in PHP.
