When I have recurrent operations I usually try to find a way to automate them. One of the best tool for this is Python. With Python you can easily create a cross platform script that can do almost anything you want with minimal effort. Let me give you one example:
from PIL import * from PIL import Image import pytesseract image= Image.open('scanned_document.png') text = pytesseract.image_to_string(image) print text
Believe it or not this snippet loads the “scanned_document.png” image file, reads the text from the image using an OCR and prints the text on the screen. So if you need to extract information from WEB pages, download files, move files in your file system etc.. repeatedly, I think you should consider using Python to automate these operations.
