Relativally new to BeautifulSoup. Attempting to obtain raw html from locally saved html file. I've looked around and have found that I should probably be using Beautiful Soup for this. Though when I do this:
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup
url = r"C:\example.html"
soup = BeautifulSoup(url, "html.parser")
text = soup.get_text()
The first argument to
BeautifulSoup is an actual HTML string, not a URL. Open the file, read its contents, and pass that in.
