I hope you're all doing well. I have a question related to fetching data using PHP cURL and regular expressions. I've been trying to figure out how to retrieve specific data from a webpage using cURL and then extract the relevant information using regular expressions.
To provide a bit of context, I'm currently working on a project where I need to scrape data from certain websites and store it in a database. After doing some research, it seems like using cURL in combination with regular expressions could be a good approach.
However, I'm not very experienced with either cURL or regular expressions, so I'm facing some difficulties. I was wondering if any of you could help me out by providing some guidance or examples of how to accomplish this task.
Specifically, what I'm trying to understand is how to use cURL to retrieve the HTML content of a webpage, and then how to use regular expressions to extract certain data from that HTML content.
If possible, it would be really helpful if you could provide some step-by-step instructions or code snippets to illustrate the process.
I appreciate any help you can provide. Thank you in advance!
