I am looking for very strong PHP programmer that knows php and knows how to do regular expressions,
Were using regular expressions to pull specific information from 3 HTML pages.
The information is always the same, the HTML varies.
The #1 page [Homepage] contains main menu for games catagories with number of games for each catagory. each catagory name is link for games catagory pages.
The #2 page:
Game catagory contain the last 20 games [pic & game name] and paging [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 ...] for another games for this catagory ( if catagory had more than 20 games)
www.[web].com/s-1/ --> cat 1
www.[web].com/s-10/ --> cat 10
www.[web].com/s-60/ --> cat 60
The #3 page:
http://www.[web].com/[url removed, login to view] --> game id #1199
http://www.[web].com/[url removed, login to view] --> game id #2509
http://www.[web].com/[url removed, login to view] --> game id #690
we need to :
#1 - [page 1]:
1. save the catagories name in DB (mysql table --> tbl_games_cat) and the number of games.
i will run the script each weekend and get if there are new games OR new catagories,
If there is news,the parse will run, else, no needed to parse catagory that number of games dosn't changes.
2. Create folder (on my local computer) with the same ID (id=325) for this catagory (i will save the games there)
#2 parse - [page 2]:
Parse the second page (games list) and save in DB the name of game & id & cat_id, also downolad the image game to the folder catagory (that created one step before)
Make sure, to pares the others pages if there are paging (more 20 games in catagory)
#3 parse - [page 2]:
Parse the game page, save the game details (string for 200 chars) in DB (mysql table --> tbl_games), and download the file (flash file) to the folder catagory
The parsing code must check if the file/catagories (image,flash file) exists in the folder AND Database table before downloaded OR inserting.
I'll run the parsing code at the end of every week.
