#473470 - 07/10/18 22:06 screen scraping upcoming earnings date

I'm a little rusty with string parsing. Hope one of gurus can help. I'm trying to scrape the upcoming earnings date from a Yahoo Finance quote page and it's not working.

See code below and sample of the text snipet I'm trying to parse.


void main()
    string eDate[50];
    string Content = http_transfer("",0);
    sscanf(Content,"<span data-reactid="102">%s<",eDate);


...<span data-reactid="100">Earnings Date</span></td><td class="Ta(end) Fw(b) Lh(14px)" data-test="EARNINGS_DATE-value" data-reactid="101"><span data-reactid="102">Jul 31, 2018</span>...

after a couple days of slogging here is a solution, if anyone is interested.

void main()
	string Content = http_transfer("",0);
	string s = strstr(strstr(Content," data-reactid="102">"),">");

	var EarningsDate = wdatef("%b %d, %Y",strtok(s+1,"<"));
