I want to use text-based console api tools for checking the contents of
web pages. I.e. not for the human eye but for an api.

What is the best tool for that? python-twisted?

I find the most straightforward method is to look at the page source and write
a Perl script to parse it.  No fancy API, and you get the results in exactly
the format you want them in.

Thanks Chris.
