Book Description

Bots can be used effortlessly to execute projects and tasks that will save time and funds. Bots are powerful tools that should be in every knowledgeable programmer’s toolbox. Developing and integrating bots into your programs may be easier than expected. They simply perform the tasks that they were designed to complete, which makes them the perfect solution for many task requirements.

Instant Simple Botting with PHP is an easy-to-read book that will give you the knowledge required to design and develop ready-to-use bots. The book covers useful bot features that can be added to the bots created during the course of the book. Learn how to improve your efficiency as a programmer or software system administrator by unleashing the power of bots.

Instant Simple Botting with PHP walks you through HTTP requests and responses, how to build basic bots, how to use objects to make using bots easier, and how to parse and utilize data retrieved by bots.

This book will also teach you how to plan ahead when designing bots, what types of methods can be helpful when developing bots, and various objects that can be used with bots, like document objects. You will also learn about bot stealth, which is an important aspect of any bot that is designed to complete bulky tasks, such as spider crawling thousands of pages of a website.

After reading this book, you should be able to build your own bots, understand the benefits and advantages of using objects to create web robots and bot related objects, and how to parse and use the data your bots gather.
