Dear R useRs,

Does any of you know if it is possible to access a web site (e.g., www.marriott.com), fill in the requested information (e.g., city, check-in date, etc), and save the results (e.g., room availability and room rates) in text files through R? I started with url and url.show but it seems that this does not do what I would like to do. Any lead would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
