Thank you

I’ve wanted to learn how to web scrape because a government regulation I need is posted online but if you want an offline copy they force you to purchase a physical book from a third party rather purchase a digital copy (epub/pdf). The regulation changes often and you have to purchase the entire book rather than just the changes. I’m going to brick a Pi a few times to learn web scraping then generate my own digital copy. Thanks again.
