    Getting value from alternate website

    Hello everyone,

    ok this is going to sound a bit weird but what i want to do is this.

    I have a page with a form on that submits the entered value to google.com
    as the following ; www.google.com/search?q=my+value+here

    now .. on googles results page it says . displaying 1 - 10 of x results

    I want to know how to get that total value ( x ) & use it for my own means further on on my script

    i hope i have explained it ok .. i know what i am trying to say but not sure if it is coming out properly

    thanks in advance
