Project Description:
I would like a script or short program which will:
- Go to www.stockcentral.com
- Log me in using the form on their ASP login page
- Accept the redirection and any relevant cookies
- Open a file containing ticker symbols
- For each ticker symbol in the file:
- Enter the ticker symbol into the form on the webpage
- Click "Get SSG file" if the ticker is valid (otherwise, go on to the next symbol)
- End loop
Note: if possible, I want the program to keep the connection to the server with login information open so that the program doesn't have to login for each ticker symbol seperately.
I would prefer that the program was written in c/c++ or python.
I have libcurl, so if you know how to use that, feel free to do so. If you're good at structuring system calls from c++ to curl, feel free to do that as well.
Otherwise, I'm using a Un*x-based Mac so no Windows only source code. Use open source software if you like provided it is installable on macs, this script is just intended to save me a little time.
I would like a demo, or at the least, for you to have tested the script at the above website. The site gives a free 14 or 30 day account without requiring any credit card info, so please just do that.

Skills required:
.NET, Anything Goes, ASP, C Programming, Perl, Python
