Curling, just not Canadian Style Python 2.6.6 and the urllib2 library

In bash, getting a web page

curl >html.html

The bash curl command has nothing to do with Canadian Curling, which is like shuffleboard on ice amidst the tension garnered tolerating a joke about the Queen or the national health care system from a surfboard riding processed cheese eating upper Mexican from south of the barbarian line. In bash, curl is short for client url, a simple http request of a web address.

In Python

x = urllib2.urlopen("")
w =

And as a part of a class init

  def __init__(self,TableName,filename,url):
    self.sqhandle=sqlite3.connect(filename) # empty if noexist
    self.sq1cursor = self.sqhandle.cursor()
    self.filename = filename
      self.sq1cursor.execute('''CREATE TABLE '''
         +TableName+''' (somenum real, somestring text)''')
      print TableName,"table already exists"
    self.samples = 0
    x = urllib2.urlopen(url)
    self.pagedata =

So if we instantiate a class we now have the html as classname.pagedata and sqlite3 handle and cursor as classname.sqhandle and sq1cursor

We need to do some things with sql like

    command = 'INSERT INTO '+table+' VALUES (' + x +', "'+ y +'")'
      print command

sqlite3 insert a row

  def sqlinsert(sqhandle,sq1cursor,table,x,y):
    command = 'INSERT INTO '+table+' VALUES (' + x +', "'+ y +'")'
      print "failed to ", command
