Is my best way to grab the contents and regexp through what i need, or am I way off? alternative ways, curl? (my knowledge of curl is 0.000001% so i don't know :))
So what you are looking to do is grab the directory listing from a server which you have no affiliation with. So if you were to go to
you could simply list all the files in it. If that is what you are trying to do, it is impossible unless the server you are getting it from specifically outputs it.
