Plugin to Get JSON Text?

Hi all:


Just curious if anybody could help me figure out how to automate the following in FileMaker.


I am currently using a Firefox plugin (Firebug) to access JSON files downloaded for a Flash site. I right-click on the JSON data and copy the raw text, then paste it into a text field in the database. I then loop through the text, parsing the data I need and placing it into the proper records.


Since I have the URL for each event, I was hoping to automate grabbing the JSON text - loop through records in the database and grab the JSON text automatically for each event. It's in a file returned from a POST call.


Thanks for your help!
