I have a website I need data mined. It's fairly straightforward. The data mining program should be a Windows program (written in either Java, Delphi or C++) and here's how it works. The program will input a zip code on this website. The search results will then be listed. There are 1000+ records to be data mined. The program will then visit each of the individual record pages and data mine the company name, mailing address, etc. Then the program should visit the next record link and download the same information. Before we begin the program, I'll need you to sign an NDA. This is a straightforward project and should be straightforward to figure out. The data should be stored in standard database program, either Access, Comma-Delimited Ascii Text File or Excel. I'm open on format.
