You noted: [[ B) We do not currently have "automatic" scripts to perform web access. Such scripts were very easy using the "line-oriented" telnet interface. Such programs are much more complicated for a "page-oriented" html interface. I expect that this problem will be solved some time in the future. ]] I think the web consortium (www.w3.org) may offer some free software that can take care of this; I'll look into it when I get a chance. What are the relevant platform constraints?
