I'm a historian who also happens to tinker around in code for my research. My interests involve textual analysis, web scraping, and the like.

@LeonidShifrin Fantastic, thank you. This is good to have a sense of the pros/cons of both options.

Thanks for this. Quick question wrt CDF - since that format does not seem to support Import or Get from non-official sources, would I then write include all of that information in the Mathematica code itself (i.e. paste the MB or so of info into the notebook itself)?

This is very good to hear! I'm trying to figure out what software is worth investing in.

comment Web Browsing Automation with Mathematica
I've failed in this before, especially w/r/t cookies. When trying to find text, I just use Import[x,"Source"] where x is the site (all manually downloaded w/ wget) and then find content using StringCases[] i.e. trlist = StringCases[pagetext, Shortest["<tr>" ~~ ___ ~~ "</tr>"]]; (which would find all text within rows in a page arranged in that way, for example)

comment Mouse gestures or keyboard shortcuts for navigating forward/backward in the documentation center
@Isaac Hmm, indeed. I would try to find a rebinding option in OS X myself, but I wonder if Mathematica has a workaround.

Yeah, I'm flummoxed after trying a bit more - this is a good question. FWIW, this is why I use the reference centre in my browser for Mathematica help.

comment Mouse gestures or keyboard shortcuts for navigating forward/backward in the documentation center
I've been playing around and can't seem to find any keyboard shortcuts for this either. If there are keyboard shortcuts, you could use something like BetterTouchTool to implement the functionality... but so far, I can only see the toolbar buttons.

comment Downloading files without using Import
Fantastic! I've used wget before,esp. when I need to use cookies and such, so this is a great addition to my toolkit. Thanks for this.

This works great. I've never used this Package, so will read up on it.
