How to send song artist and title to any website?

The Magic RDS is a great tool for song information processing. Why do not utilize it?

  1. Open the External Text window and select More Options card.
  2. Configure the HTTP Query tool.
  3. Make sure the selected source is valid, click Close and check the http://pira.cz/rds/test.asp page.

This is the test.asp file listing (PHP would look similarly):

<html>
<body>
<% dim s
s=Request.QueryString("song")
set fs=Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
if s<>"" then
set f=fs.OpenTextFile(Server.MapPath("text.txt"),2,true)
f.WriteLine(s)
f.Close
Set f=Nothing
else
If (fs.FileExists(Server.MapPath("text.txt")))=true Then
  set f=fs.OpenTextFile(Server.MapPath("text.txt"),1)
  Response.Write("On air: "+f.ReadAll)
  f.Close
  Set f=Nothing
end if
end if
set fs=Nothing %>
</body>
</html>
  

Please note that this is only an example. Although handling the text string sent by GET method is a simple job, the implementation depends on several criteria like access rights, server configuration etc. Pira.cz cannot study individual cases and propose any solutions.
