If I click on a link of an ID that relates to a record of an entry in a remote database, how do I retrieve the record?
For example,on my browser I'm providing a link to an id called 9657715, by clicking on which I've to connect to "" and from the result page(not display this page on the browser), parse and get the id(which lies at the bottom of the page) through which connect to "", which has to be finally displayed on the browser. the intermediate retrieval and parsing should not be displayed.
These ids(SEARCH=aaf95915.1) in the links have to be dynamically filled in(appended) from a table and keep changing.
I looking for a reply at the earliest.

hi Joe,
Write a client program(socket programming)connecting to the to the host " " to the port 80. Get the response html page and search for the required hyper link after the <DT> tag. Now open the link in a new browser.
I agree. Here's the link:
