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:
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.
