Is there a way for check_http or any other plugin work around to check
specific string from the content of http page not in headers, for
instance I have a _virtual_ domain www.example.com and I want to make
sure that this is up, so I use check_http -H www.example.com -p 80 -e
hello, but when I use -e it only checkes header that I get from using -v

Page is 1685 characters
**** HEADER ****

**** CONTENT ****

Not even headers.. Only "STATUS" pre-header or whatever it called, but I
need for plug in is actually to download that page like any browser
would do and check for a content for specific string.

Thank you in advance
