   First I check if somebody else solved this
   problem before because I am not stupid and dont
   want to reinvent the wheel again and again.

Why not?  Maybe the wheel you reinvent will be more
suited than previously (re-)invented wheels and
thus stay a"round" longer (yuk yuk).  :-D

I think what people are trying to tell you is that
screen-scraping is a slog and maintaining programs
that screen-scrape is doubly (or triply) so, to the
extent that you end up going from "big feature" to
"big PITA" to "big relief" when the suffering ends.

That is the real answer.  That is the real wheel.
