Hi guys,

I have been wanting to get live quotes through my brokerage account and I know how to alter the html to log in: I set value after username in html and fill in the username, and i do the same for the password. As I can see in firebug the html shows that i filled in password and username.

I know how to get the html by curling an url in applescript by do shell. I also know how to assign it to a variable and how to alter it.  After i assigned the html with login information back to the site i and it is assigned to a variable such as html. How do i do this? imagine my altered html is in a variable and i want it send to a site to get the response page? Then i will have access to the live quotes:D and i can supply my numbers page with accurate information to supply my stochastic models.
