I have a program written in Perl that I got a RAC programmer to write me about 6 months ago. It goes through Craigslist ad links, sraping the content from each and writing it to a TXT file. It's a fairly simple program that has worked well up until the last week. Now it goes through the ads, but stopped scraping. Perhaps Craigslist changed something on their end. I am hoping to find a programmer that can fix this. It is most likely just a simple tweak -- CL seems to often minorly change the structure of their sites periodically, so a scraper will just have to be slightly adjusted. Or, if you can't fix it, if you could provide an alternative that works in the same way. thanks.
