OK, I have a string that I got from a website (when I'm not making the program it'll read it all the time...)
Here is the program:
--- START ---
# file = urllib2.urlopen("http://www.tremorseven.com/aim/deepaim.php?job=view
# print "URL Opened: " + file.geturl()
# URLInfo = file.read()
URLInfo = """Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey
#235: When this girl at the museum asked me whom I liked better, Monet or Manet, I said, "I like mayonnaise." She just stared at me, so I said it again, louder. Then she left. I guess she went to try to find some mayonnaise for me. Refresh

print "Contents of URL: "
for x in range(0, len(URLInfo)):
if (URLInfo[x] == '#'):
for y in range(x, x + 5):
if (URLInfo[y] == ':'):
NumberStr = URLInfo[x+1:y]
print "Number of Deep Thought: " + NumberStr
StartOfThought = y+2
for z in range(StartOfThoughts, len(URLInfo)):
if (URLInfo[z] == '<':
EndOfThought = z
print "Contents of Deep Thought:"
print URLInfo[StartOfThought: EndOfThought]
---- END ----
I search for the # (this works), then i search for the ":" (this works) and i retrieve the number of this deep thought. Then i search for the position after the ":" for a "<" (this doesn't work).
And it does not work (dum dum dum). Any help would be appreciated.
