It is sometimes necessary to be alerted when a change is made to a web-page.
Currently, I have some simple scripts on OpenBSD that download the web-page with
lynx -width 120 -dump, get relevant parts of it with
-B3 -A3 etc, save it to a special folder under a
date-based filename, keep track of the latest two versions with
ln -fs, and finally perform the
diff, all run from
The scripts work, however, they look a bit ugly, fragile and may not necessarily handle some edge cases. Is there perhaps some existing software that can do this task better and more streamlined?
