Content Fetching?

Does anyone know how to grab content between certain HTML tags in a php script? Say that there is a website that has updates and I wanted it to add it to my website. How could I make it so it copies the text from one website, and post it on another? Sorry if this is confusing v.v

I was thinking of file_get_contents...

One way to do is first get content of the page using file_get_contents or similar function and then parse returned string.

Exactly. Then use a regular expression [php.net] to match and grab the desired data.
