What does a webpage has to do with it?

(topic : web scraping)
well i meant you put your script in a webpage no need to put any html tags
if you wish.

then your program has two files. an updater and the script

the updater on startup scrape your web page and see if the text is same as
the script file

if yes : run script file

if not : override the script file with the text of the web page
