Look around on their site, find contact information, ask for documentation and rights to access the data in an automated fashion.

comment Efficient way in comparing two lists
@DavidPacker Are you suggesting to query for all records, do the filtering on the application side, and inserting the new ones? That's race-prone (in the case of multiple instances) and very costly as the number of elements in the database grows.

comment Efficient way in comparing two lists
Do you need to do any additional work in the application with the duplicates, or can you simply attempt to insert all entries and let the database reject the duplicates by virtue of unique constraints?

comment How does the base class non-virtual function get called when derived class object is assigned to base class?
I had hoped that this question was about slicing on assignment, but it seems that you've conflated pointers and objects.

comment How to guarantee web script execution sequence/order or not parallels queues
The universal truth of any distributed system is that wall time is not global and is not unique. If you want more guarantees with regard to ordering, you need to implement more coordinated ordering schemes.

comment Where is the class itself stored at runtime to be used as a reference
The OP may be used to prototype-based languages like JavaScript, where there is a master template that new objects are cloned from. Consider this in answers.

comment Would it be possible to transfer an HTML file using a protocol different from HTTP?
Interestingly enough and very tangentially, if there is enough information in the client-initiated handshake to identify the kind of connection, you can have multiple services on a single port by having a program that disambiguates and forwards the connection to the right kind of protocol handler. ZNC uses this to have the WebAdmin UI and the IRC bouncer on the same user-defined port.

comment Readme.txt vs. README.txt
I've always thought that all-uppercase was a form of emphasis, much like how you have the sections of uppercase in legalese.
