I need a web scraper written for the following url:
[login to view URL]
The "Load Board" box in the middle of the page will need to be clicked. Information on the MergedFile will need to be scraped.
The number of pages will vary. All pages will need to be scraped.
The output should be a pipe (|) delimited file with the following column mappings:
origin_city --> data located in the "ORIGIN CITY" column
origin_state --> data located in the "ST" column to the right of the "ORIGIN CITY" column
ship_date --> data located in the "PICKUP DATE" column changed to the YYYY-MM-DD format
destination_city --> data located in the "DESTINATION CITY" column
destination_state --> data located in the "ST" column to the right of the "DESTINATION CITY" column
receive_date --> leave blank
trailer_type --> data in the abbrevation located in the "EQUIPMENT" column
load_size --> data located in the "MODE" column, leave "Full" as "Full" and "Partial" as "Partial", if labled as "LTL" change to "Partial"
weight --> leave blank
length --> Leave blank
width --> leave blank
height --> leave blank

pay_rate --> data located in the "RATE" column
contact_phone --> leave blank
contact_name --> data located in the "USER" column

commodity --> leave blank
The first line of the output should contain all of the column headers.
Any field that contain no data should be left blank.
Please do not use words like "null" or "blank" in blank columns.
Below is a sample output of the first 5 columns using sample data:
The deliverable will be a Perl .pl file that must run on
Ubuntu Linux and must use Modern::Perl. The Perl .pl file
should be called '[login to view URL]' and the output file should be
called '[login to view URL]'
It will be scheduled in cron to run unattended every 15 minutes.
Please specific what language/OS/modules you plan to use.
