comment What scripting language or platform to use for web page downloads and screen interaction?
Craig, thanks a lot for the detailed explanation for my options! As of this point, I am not looking to extracting data and data tables. I am simply thinking of printing the entire pages into PDFs for now. Data extraction will likely lead to breakages more frequently because of how websites might change format. And fixing data extraction breakages will take time and I will not be able to do it. On the other hand, changing or adding the pages that I want to add in a PDF download should be possible even for me. So for this application is Python better?

Thank you Craig. I will add it into the script. Just did not get the alert that there was a response to this question. Need to figure out alerts on this site.

Got it! and thanks again! I wish Stack exchange sent me an alert that there are comments after mine on this question. I came back here as I had another question about what script language to use for something else that I need. Will ask that as a separate question.

The script now works. Thank you for the help and for the tips as to why you included double-quotes. And your thinking about how find should return only one answer is spot on!

Upon more research it appears -E might be the flag on Mac to replace -r. So -E worked. Now to debug find etc. Will do and update.

Craig, the -r option in sed does not seem to work on a Mac. I looked up the manual for sed and it appears that -r option is "less portable". I will look up the sed manual for Mac. Looked it up here and no -r option. developer.apple.com/library/mac/#documentation/Darwin/Reference/… Any ideas as to what to do? MEanwhile, I will study up the Mac sed and see what I can do with it.

Wow. This looks like will work. I will try it out and report back! Thank you for the help! Btw, I am doing this on a Mac, and had the option of trying to figure out using AppleScript, but since Unix commands are so much more capable (I feel). And your script shows how compact this can be! I will try this out and also read sed manual again.
