I'm looking for a script that can be used to keep an eye on sites and urls for updates and changes - anyone that would be able to suggest such a script.

I used to use a OS/2 PM application that kept track of OS/2 news sites for me years back. I can't find it anymore

I see this one on hobbes if you want a native solution:

Or this PHP script on hot scripts

And Mozilla has some of this built-in. Don't ask me how it works, I've seen the options on the bookmark properties dialog, but, haven't investigate furthur.

Ok, thanks for the suggestions, I might clearify it a bit, I need the script to be run on a server and not a client. It would be same as some of the client software available for OS2 and I'm actually using one under OS2 but it keeps crashing once a while on some sites. So I'm now looking for script that I can run on the server instead and that hopefully would work out with sending an e-mail to notify about changes.
