    What language could do the following...

    I want to refresh a website once every 30 minutes, and if it finds a certain word somewhere have it start an MP3 or play a .wav to let me know.

    Would this use perl? Sorry if this doesn't belong on this forum, if you know a better place to ask this, let me know.

    You can do that with any web programming language....

    do the refresh using meta refresh and on every pageload check if your condition == true then echo some html method to play the audio file... I'd recommend doing the audio thing using flash for more compatibility....

    Example with html/php:

    PHP Code:

    <META HTTP-EQUIV=Refresh CONTENT="1800">

    if ( <your_condition> ) {
    puts some <embed> code here to play the audio file....

    Cool thanks for the reply!

    I'm a moron when it comes to coding, I can sort of read it, can never write it, my mental capacity is lacking heh.

    Basically all I want it to do is


    if ( <your_condition=

    look for this word "EXAMPLE" within the source but excluding this word "EXAMPLE" if found within a webform (drop down menu etc)

    > ) {

    Heeh, i'll play around some and see if I can come up with something.
