The Ultimate E-mail Toolkit is a PHP library designed to handle all of your one-off e-mail needs on nearly all web hosts. This toolkit directly talks to SMTP and POP3 servers just as a regular e-mail client would instead of relying on the PHP mail() function. The result is a high level of reliability in delivery of e-mail messages to recipients. Functions like ConvertHTMLToText() and MakeValidEmailAddress() make it easy to do complex tasks such as convert ugly HTML input into a beautiful plain-text equivalent and analyze an e-mail address to automatically correct common mistakes. All of that while following the various IETF RFC Standards surrounding e-mail. The Ultimate E-mail Toolkit is extracted from Barebones CMS and the license is also your pick of MIT or LGPL.
Ultimate E-mail Toolkit 1.0RC6 is the sixth release candidate of Ultimate E-mail Toolkit.

The Ultimate Web Scraper Toolkit is a powerful set of tools designed to handle all of your web scraping needs on nearly all web hosts. This toolkit offers clean, RFC-compliant web scraping that makes it easy to create web requests that are indistinguishable from a real web browser, which minimizes headaches with browser sniffing servers. Once a document is retrieved, the included copy of the Simple HTML DOM library makes it easy to extract the desired content from the document via the jQuery-like selector syntax. This toolkit is extracted from Barebones CMS and the license is also your pick of MIT or LGPL.
Ultimate Web Scraper Toolkit 1.0RC10 is the tenth release candidate of the Ultimate Web Scraper Toolkit.
