Depends on what you want to leech.

Also VB6 in *NIX = lulz.

First you would have to understand Visual Basic. Create a bunch of loops. But we can't really help you without knowing what your leeching? Wait, why is this in *NIX in the first place?

Moved to newbie HQ.

You need to give more info, no one here knows what you're asking. What kind of "leecher?" What will this program do? What languages do you know? Give more info!

People still use VB6?

I haven't touched VB6 in years. But I think he is probably talking about leeching torrents which will get this thread locked.

No, it won't. As long as no one is linking to anything pirated or illegal, it's OK.

What? First of all bbcode is only used by the submitter to format their text. It's translated into HTML for viewing usage. Second, what do you mean by "leaching forum posts?" If you want some way to extract the text from each individual post, use an HTTP client library and a regex library. "httplib2" and "re" on python for instance. I think there was actually a thread about this a long time ago on these boards. Someone wanted to create a page that showed the latest posts from multiple forums. It was concluded that the easiest and most practical way to do this would be to convince the owner of each forum to add some sort of common API.

But I don't even know if this is relevant to you at all, seeing how vague and unspecific your posts are.

Let me be more specific.

I want a software or source code for something that leeches or extracts the post content when a url of a forum is entered.

it sounds almost like you're describing your average web browser. if you're on linux, you could probably use wget or curl, but since you mentioned visual basic, i assume you're on a windows PC.

so would this software get all of the posts in a topic? all the posts in a forum? a single post that is linked to?

When you say leech, do you mean mirror the forum with the URL as a parameter passed to the application?

I used a similar method to leech a forum that had proxy server IP addresses. First I used HTTrack to mirror the website and then used egrep with a regular expression to find all the IP addresses and port numbers. Also there is a real neat tool called Brown Recluse

Then go to http://python.org/doc/ and read the tutorials. Once you've learned Python a bit, you can check out the httplib2 documentation.
