I'd like to write a little script to automatically go out to my library website and pull down the list of books that I have checked out.
what is the DLL you need to link to for ie ole automation?

If I were trying to do this, I'd write a little VB app with an embedded Internet Explorer component and poke things at it. This has the advantage that you don't have to scrape or parse the HTML yourself; you can wait for the document to arrive and then find the things you want in the DOM, all nicely parsed in a tree format for you. Also IE will manage cookies for you.

Try cURL. http://curl.haxx.se/
if you are of the perl persuasion try *LWP* - http://www.perldoc.com/perl5.6/lib/LWP.html
Automating IE sounds quick and easy, which is what I'm looking for here. Thanks for all the suggestions.
