Web Scraper

Web Scraper
1. To capture the information displayed on a single web page. This may be to either capture the entire content of a webpage or more typically to capture certain information from a web page. A web scraper is a simple development over the screen scraper technique.
2. To capture (and download) an entire website. A technique to capture and download a complete image of a website so it can be browsed off-line. This involves downloading each file used to render a web page on the site and to follow all the links on the site until every page and file has been downloaded. Web Scrapers - the tools that perform this capture and download - can typically be set to download an entire site or just portions of it.
