How can I get a Hyperlink url ?
10 views (last 30 days)
when I get an html page as a string with urlread (e.g. 'http://www.mathworks.com/index.html?s_tid=gn_loc_drop'), I can see the line '<li class="topnav_products ">Products</li>' and >Products< is a hyperlink to 'http://www.mathworks.com/products/'. Is it possible to get the hyperlink adress, here 'http://www.mathworks.com/products/' ?
Many thanks for your help

The function "urlread" returns a string containing the entire text of the webpage at the specified URL. You may then use regular expressions to extract hyperlinks from this text.
html = urlread(url);
hyperlinks = regexprep(html,'<a.*?/a>','');
