Extract img url links from HTML document

I needed to find and get a webpage’s img src url links. I wanted to do this with a script on a regular basis. The solution I found was to use PHP domdocument:

[php]
<?php
$url="http://example.com";

$html = file_get_contents($url);

$doc = new DOMDocument();
@$doc->loadHTML($html);

$tags = $doc->getElementsByTagName(‘img’);

foreach ($tags as $tag) {
echo $tag->getAttribute(‘src’);
}
?>

[/php]

After spending some time using wget, cat, grep and so on to solve my problem, this little php code made my life easier 🙂
