in thread fetching and storing data from web.

It took me two hours to build the module on Win32. I got so frustrated that I've just put the name of the module to the search engine in the hope to get something working. If I do a proper search the first hit is the examples page you mentioned so no problem there.

By the way grats for your module: it is really business like. Automatically looking up the form suitable for the given fields is really handy. I know what I mean: I parse forms manually from web pages and when the structure of the page changes ( form 5 suddenly becomes form 4 ) the whole application fails.
