Q: for the Web Scripting Gurus

    I am making a web page for the Tomato which will allow me to get some system stats from my satellite modem and display them on the Tomato.

    I am using an ASP script for now that:

    1. Reads the contents of an html status web page from my sat modem (shows up in a large table of data)
    2. Parses the data and makes a calculation
    3. Displays the calculated data I want to see

    I've written a script on my Windoze PC that successful uses a MSXML2 ActiveX object to read the contents of a web page into memory using the xmlhttp.responseText object. The problem is that the ActiveX object is not available on Linux.

    I need a method to read the contents of a web page into memory/variable/object for parsing. Java would be nice.

    Anybody have any recommendations? Will PHP work on Tomato?
