Using a web browser (IE or Chrome) I can save a web page (.html) with Ctl-S, inspect it with any text editor, and see data in a table format. One of those numbers I want to extract, but for many, many web pages, too many to do manually. So I'd like to use WGET to get those web pages one after another, and write another program to parse the .html and retrieve the number I want. But the .html file saved by WGET when using the same URL as the browser does not contain the data table. Why not? It is as if the server detects the request is coming from WGET and not from a web browser, and supplies a skeleton web page, lacking the data table. How can I get the exact same web page with WGET? - Thx!
An example of the URL I'm trying to fetch is: http://performance.morningstar.com/fund/performance-return.action?t=ICENX®ion=usa&culture=en-US where the string ICENX is a mutual fund ticker symbol, which I will be changing to any of a number of different ticker symbols. This downloads a table of data when viewed in a browser, but the data table is missing if fetched with WGET.
