I wrote this sentence

The user first constructs a wrapper by creating several anchors by means of an example page. The resulting wrapper is saved into a file to be used later for extracting data from other pages of the same website or similar websites.

I am not sure resulting is a proper word for such outcomes! Maybe "created", "generated" or a better general word?

  • Why you do not say the wrapper and semicolon. However, I think the first line can be refined

    Resulting appears to be superfluous. I think what you mean is something like The user constructs a wrapper by identifying anchors which delimit extractable data on a representative page; this wrapper may then be saved as a file and reused to extract data from similarly structured pages on the same website or similar websites.

    (+1) Also, ; this wrapper is really good

    Or, you could omit "wrapper" from the first clause, making your sentence "The user first creates several anchors by means of a page template. The resulting wrapper is saved ...:" BTW, I am not sure "an example page" is worse than "a page template", but I thought I'd offer it as an alternative. Aug 23, 2015 at 21:50

    You can't pay any of us; we do this obsessively, out of love for the correct usage of the language! Aug 24, 2015 at 5:41

You can either find a better suited adjective, or consider changing the noun:

  • The result
  • The final product
