Hey everyone, Basically I need a spider that will go through [url removed, login to view]'s 10,000 item database located here: [url removed, login to view] This spider will strip out the following information: Title of Product Hyperlink to the Product Description of Product And insert the information into a MySQL query, eg: "INSERT into products (title, link, description) VALUES ('$title', '$link', '$description')"; In addition, you will see on each sub-category page there is a link like this: [url removed, login to view] I need you to strip out the $c variable and record it in the query as well; for instance, in the link above, this indicates that all of these books are found in the "Business to Business" section. So, the Mysql query would now look something like this: "INSERT into products (title, link, description, category) VALUES ('$title', '$link', '$description', '$category')"; It has to be MySQL, and it has to be programmed in Perl so that I can execute it off a command line (not a cgi, but a *.pl file. Please just use: LWP::Simple; as the module to connect and crawl, thanks.
