essentially a requisite of utilizing the computer algebra software I am proficient in to perform analysis on data I collect in other programs is that said data is collected in a text or csv file format.
So naturally this is no issue for anything command line based, for example I collect data on one of my machine's DNS cache simply via a .bat file that pipes the output of a command in cmd.exe to a .txt, opens my CAS program, which loads a database and reads that .txt file, then adds it's data to the data already collected, and updates the statistics I have specified.
However I have always wanted to do this for the output of the Developer Tools interface for any browser, is this possible?
I am becoming familiar with a Linux OS and would appreciate suggestions for any operating system.
After finding this question here a last resort is to use SendKeys in cmd.exe, ie one solution is to direct SendKeys commands to the browser that will select all the text within the DevTools console and copy it, then use SendKeys again directed to notepad.exe to save the log. Which raises a new question, how to reference the browser window in those hypothetical SendKey commands.
