Basically, I wanted to read the top line from this feed: [a href=\"http://ws.audioscrobbler.com/1.0/user/Sgb1622/recenttracks.txt\" target=\"_blank\"]http://ws.audioscrobbler.com/1.0/user/Sgb1...ecenttracks.txt[/a]

and output it in a one-line text format. I wrote this code to attempt it:
[a href=\"http://code.pastebin.com/602914\" target=\"_blank\"]http://code.pastebin.com/602914[/a] (Sorry about putting it on pastebin, but it WOULD NOT SUBMIT to this post at all.)

It worked. To an extent. It worked on apache, at least. When uploaded, it gave me this:
[!--quoteo--][div class=\'quotetop\']QUOTE[/div][div class=\'quotemain\'][!--quotec--]
Warning: fopen(): URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration in /home/.denali/sgb162/sgb162.com/reader.php on line 4

Warning: fopen(http://ws.audioscrob...ecenttracks.txt): failed to open stream: no suitable wrapper could be found in /home/.denali/sgb162/sgb162.com/reader.php on line 4

Warning: fread(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource in /home/.denali/sgb162/sgb162.com/reader.php on line 5

Warning: fclose(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource in /home/.denali/sgb162/sgb162.com/reader.php on line 6[/quote]

I'm assuming that means they don't want me opening & reading files from other servers or something. So I guess I'd have to use something else. Basically, what I need is an idea and a concept or something. Would sockets be the way to go? I really don't know how to use sockets. Reading up on them on php.net confused me. <_< Do you know of a better way to do this or to fix it? Any help appreciated, thanks.

You could try cURL.

[a href=\"http://www.php.net/curl\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.php.net/curl[/a]
