    Hello,

    I understand this can be done with the API... Maybe one day, I'll make use of our API access. However for the time being and for most users I think this might be useful.

    We often enter in task that could result in millions and millions of results, but we only need 1 million.

    I think it might be useful for many users to have a desired results limit that stops the task and considers it completed.

    Could be a simple, stop after getting x number of results lines.

    Let me know what you think,
    J

    You can sort of do this without the API.

    Here is a link to the main forum through Google Translate that shows how to only output X number of results to a file after that the results aren't saved:
    https://translate.google.com/transl...=https://a-parser.com/threads/3679/&sandbox=1

    The problem is it won't stop the task but will limit results saved.

    There may be a way I'm not aware of and I'm sure support will chime in if there is a better way without API.

    This would be such a neat little feature to have. I hope it gets implemented.

    Hello.
    At the moment, it's impossible to stop parsing before the end of processing of all requests, and in the near future such a possibility is not planned.
