Hello list,  

Is there a smarter way of getting a text file with patchinfo from metalink than ploughing and grabbing through tons of ML screens?  

I want to upload this metalink patch info into my reporting repository and use this for compliancy reporting, i.e. show for each database how much time has passed between patch release by the vendor and applying it to the database. And not for just one but for hundreds of databases. So I have to deal with multiple oracle versions times multiple platforms times last four years of patch history. That's a lot of patches.  

Grid control has a link to oracle metalink and is able to download some of the info I need. I will explore that too.
