    There is a webpage that I want to scrape the content and search for specific items in the content and then post those specific items to another file.

    What would be the best way to go about this?

    I think that this was discussed here such as how sites like woot trackers, etc work.

    You look for specific classes and shit and have it pull those, I'm pretty sure what benf posted was whatever the method involved was.
