My first WebCrawler

Decided to try my hand at a Web crawler today. First one took all the links from a page and put them in a file. when done with that page it picks a link from that file and continues. Second one takes all .jpg files and saves them to a folder. Third one let's you pick a word and counts how many times it appears on a website. because we are lame, when we found words with 1 instance, me and the little women seek and find them. Since nobody else cares about my programming adventures, figured I'd share

a webcrawler is a nice project, if you have some experience with web search engines. A lot of exciting aplications, an a lot of complexities too

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=qfGthiqwaZo This is the tutorial I watched, but his method didn't work. html2text didn't work for me at all, I think it's a python 2 vs 3 issue. urllib2 had same problem, but I built on the same principles and after some tinkering it is working excellent
