Thank you for helping to improve the Free Software Directory!
This page has not completed review yet.
This submission will now wait until an administrator reviews it and chooses whether to add it to the directory. If you would like to become an admin, then visit the directory mailing list and introduce yourself.
Admins, this may be a request for a new entry. First run some searches for the page. Admins may create the page after making sure that it doesn't already exist under a similar name. (You may also want to edit the part of the URL after "/Entry/", then load that address, to make sure it is concise and doesn't contain strange characters or unwanted spaces.)
Admins, when you are done incorporating any needed changes from this page into a main entry, please edit this page and change the following text from:
|Finished review=No to:
|Finished review=yes. This helps keep submissions organized. (Note that doing this isn't what adds the entry to the directory.)
|Short description||Xidel is a command line tool to download web pages and extract data from them.|
|Full description||Xidel can download files over http/s connections, follow redirections, links, or extracted values, and also process local files. The data can be extracted using XPath 2.0 expressions, CSS 3 selectors, and custom, pattern-matching templates that are like an annotated version of the processed page. The extracted values can then be exported as plain text/xml/json or assigned to variables to use in other extract expressions. There is also an online cgi service for testing.|
