By the way I tried all of the examples posted to better see what I was missing. I'm a visual oriented person and so I went with steps I could see. Only one problem in removing leading spaces, I took the lazy way out after getting confused again with multiple repeat loops etc.
So here is what I decided to use for now:
put "http://weather.yahooapis.com/forecastrss?w=22664069&u=f" into tTempURL
put url tTempURL into field "Source"
put field 1 into tTemp
filter tTemp with "*yweather:*"
replace "<" with "" in tTemp
replace "/>" with "" in tTemp
replace "yweather:" with "" in tTemp
replace quote&space with quote&cr in tTemp -- Did the trick
repeat for 5 -- Lazy way to catch leading spaces
repeat with x = 1 to the number of lines in tTemp
if char 1 of line x of tTemp is space then delete char 1 of line x of tTemp
if line x of tTemp is quote then delete line x of tTemp
if line x of tTemp is "" then delete line x of tTemp
if last line of tTemp is "" then delete last line of tTemp
put tTemp into field "Result"
I don't mind the quotes in the Result for my other code and I get a nice list of the info I need.
Now I need to write a LAT LON converter to WOEID and or a ZIP Code to WOEID (Yahoo ID scheme)
w=22664069 is for Bethel Park PA
