I am having some difficulty generating the output I want from web
scraping. Specifically, the script I wrote, while it runs without any
errors, is not writing to the output file correctly. It runs, and
creates the output .txt file; however, the file is blank (ideally it
should be populated with a list of names).
I took the base of a program that I had before for a different data
gathering task, which worked beautifully, and edited it for my
purposes here. Any insight as to what I might be doing wrote would be
highly appreciated. Code is included below. Thanks!
outfile = open("Skadden.txt","w")
A = 1
Z = 26
for letter in range(A,Z):
for line in urllib2.urlopen("http://www.skadden.com/Index.cfm?
x = line
if '"><B>' in line:
