I’ve been trying to import live data from the National Buoy Center and having difficulties as their url is .txt not .xml. Having looked at previous threads I discovered a read file for URL addresses here: http://www.grasshopper3d.com/forum/topics/read-webpage however, though this imports the data it does not update after applying a timer.
Does anyone know how to import and update data live from .txt URL addresses? Having also looked at GHowl it appears to favour XML format data? Could there be a way round this?

Any info you guys could provide would be greatly appreciated.
