CraigsList "Free" section Scraper.

I need a script that will scrape [url removed, login to view] and save the information in an xml file. Only the United States "Free" section needs to be scraped and I need to ability to specify the US city (e.g. chicago), area (e.g. sox) and neighborhood (neighborhood should be optional since most cities don't offer this; see "sf bayarea", choose "sby", click "free" and notice the neighborhood dropdown). If a neighborhood is not specified, the script should parse the listings and pull the neighborhood listed next to the title (ignore postings without neighborhoods).

Here's the list of information that is needed from the scrape:

URL of Post

URL(s) of photos (if available)

Title of Post

"Reply to" Email Address

Post Description

Date Posted



This script can be coded in Python (preferred) or Ruby

Here are a couple of example URLs:

[url removed, login to view] (no neighborhood specified in URL)

[url removed, login to view];neighborhood=109 (neighborhood specified in the URL)
