Downloader and analyzer for [url removed, login to view] I need a tool that helps me monitor usenet posts to help me analyze fake usenet identities. What I would like to do is to: Do a search on [url removed, login to view] (e.g. by group, by author, by date etc) with different options (sort by, etc.) [url removed, login to view] Copy its resulting URL into your program, and tell to the program "get me (at most) N pages of these results" The program should start form that page and follow to next pages (adding &start=__&sa=N) [url removed, login to view] The the program should then examine all the links to messages in those pages [url removed, login to view] Convert each link to "original format" structure [url removed, login to view] And get all these messages, extracting all the useful information/headers from those messages, like: From: Newsgroups: X-Newsreader: Message-ID: Date: NNTP-Posting-Host: (Any other suggestion on useful information?) The information should be written to a text file in tab-delimited form, so that it's easy for me to analyze them.
