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.
