Urgent!! How to write a shell program to execute command to access internet?


I am new ot unix. So, can i write a shell(c shell or korn shell) program to access internet? I mean if I run the program, it can access specified url and then copy the html to a file? Can anyone help me? And how can make the program runs every 1 hr?

new comer

lynx -dump <URL>

Look up info on crontab to learn how to schedule the job. Recommend buying a good Unix book (some recommendations listed <A HREF="http://droflet.net/unix_dot_com_faq.html">here</A>).
