View Full Version : How to include data from other ftp site?

09 Sep 2010, 04:35 AM
I am a novice in web programming.

With a lot of effort I have tried to develop a forum for Satellite Earth Station using a free phpbb forum provider.

I now wish to embed some useful real time data available in the net @ http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/ftpdir/latest/wwv.txt containing following :

:Product: Geophysical Alert Message wwv.txt
:Issued: 2010 Sep 09 0901 UTC
# Prepared by the US Dept. of Commerce, NOAA, Space Weather Prediction Center
# Geophysical Alert Message
Solar-terrestrial indices for 08 September follow.
Solar flux 75 and mid-latitude A-index 8.
The mid-latitude K-index at 0900 UTC on 09 September was 0 (04 nT).

No space weather storms were observed for the past 24 hours.

No space weather storms are expected for the next 24 hours.

Specifically I want to put following line in my website:

Current SOLAR FLUX = 75

I tried following code after modifying one of the readymade widgets without knowing what it means in software.

<div align="center">

<iframe src="http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/ftpdir/latest/wwv.txt"


But it embedded full document. How do I display only the required field?

Attempted $string , echo substr etc but no luck.

Can anyone help me in this please.
