Write a Perl script to do this

Hi there,

I was wondering if you would be able to make me a script similar to the one assigned at this link: [url removed, login to view]

I don't know if perl or php would be better for this job, but I want the script to email me when a college course goes from full or available. The website of my college courses is: Once you arrive on that page, you can search for classes by clicking the link on the right hand side. This is not a homework assignment, this is purely because I will need to switch classes due to a bad registration time.

Please let me know if this is possible. I have my own web server that I will upload the script to.


David Brooks

The correct link for the college courses is - I forgot the s in https
