Is there a way to search on a webpage for the string 'href="' like it is done with the string 'http:' in cleve molers surfer.m example?

Can you provide a link to that example?

Janis Uhrig on 21 Apr 2016 // Here they are looking for the string 'http:' ,but the website I want to crawl does have the links like this: href="studierende/bachelor-studiengaenge/betriebswirtschaft/aktuelles/terminplaene/terminplan-ss/" class="link">Terminplan</a. So the algorithm can't find the link.

Try regexp . For example:
exp = '<href="\w+">'
matches = regexp(youStr,exp,'match')

index = strfind(Str, 'href=')
