Well, it still does not work, as can be seen from the output of the following codes: I mean, the output from http://html2text.theinfo.org seems quite clean, but it turns to a messay when i tried to read it into Stata, weather by insheet using or by the Mata code followed. Do anyone have such an experience? thanks Chuntao copy "http://html2text.theinfo.org/?url=++http%3A%2F%2Fqq.ico.la%2Fqq459322464.html"; d:\temp.txt, replace mata: fh = fopen("d:\temp.txt", "r") junk=fget(fh) junk junk=fget(fh) junk } On Fri, Jun 7, 2013 at 2:36 AM, Sergiy Radyakin <serjradyakin@gmail.com> wrote: > Chuntao, > > adding to Nick's comments, you don't have to parse HTML code yourself > as this is a pretty standard task.
