I have a data mining project I need completing.
I have had some people "do this" for me, and yet nothing ever came from it, despite paying for it.
Anyway, I would like a script that extracted information from certain tables from certain pages on the internet and data entered into my database in a particular format. The database will be MySQL (development area will be provided) and the language used is preferably PHP. I am assuming the best method to do this will be by using the Snoopy class, or cURL?? But tell me if I am wrong.
Sample websites will be provided for you to extract the data from, and the script must be able to handle a large amount of data. All that you need to know at the moment, is that data will have to be extracted from a table of unknown length, but known layout.
Please send a PM for more details.
