Get contents from web by preg_match


Recommended Posts

I want to parse some tiny lines from a webpage. I have few questions:


1. What is faster and better: cURL or file_get_contents?

2. Is it better to run preg_match commands form every line I want OR first get a shorter part (e.g. between <head> tag) then running preg_match for the lines?

3. Actually, I need to load the whole page before parsing. Is there a way to stop loading the whole page. For example, when I want something between <head> tag; stop loading <body>?


Thank you in advance!
