Craigslist querying script / scraper

I'd like a program/script that does the following:

-resides on my host's server (OS linux)

-I provide in the script an address (or multiple addresses) of Craigslist searches. For example:

[url removed, login to view];subAreaID=&query=nintendo&catAbbreviation=sss

-It makes this query every X minutes (I am able to specify in the script)

It then appends the result to a flatfile (CSV).

I'd like the following stored in the database for each resulting post:

Query Address

Date/Time of Query



Date/Time of post



Category1 - i.e. "seattle craigslist"

Category2 - i.e. "seattle"

Category3 - i.e. "for sale / wanted"

Category4 - i.e. "video gaming"


I'll also pay extra for an email notification feature. This would entail the following:

-For queries I specify, an email is sent to a specified email addresses, whenever that query comes up with a result

-For other queries I specify, an email is sent to a specified email address every Z minutes with the latest results from that query

Please specify in your bid if it includes the email feature or not.

I am open to revisions to this proposal, if anything seems problematic though. Thanks.
