I want to make a program that get info from a website and prints it out
in a txt file.

I made this:

import urllib
f = urllib.urlopen("http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0407304/")
s = f.read()
k = open("test.txt","w")
k.write(s)
k.close()
f.close()

That saves all the html code into the test.txt file. But if i for
example only want the genre, plot outline and Cast overview to be
written to the txt file. How can i do that?


And another problem i have:

If the txt file i want the information to be saved in already have some
text saved in it. How can i save the info from the website  between the
text that was there before?

for example:

blablablablablablablabla
blablablablablablablabla
blablablablablablablabla
(inset info from website here)
blablablablablablablabla
blablablablablablablabla
blablablablablablablabla
