In Progress

Spider/Robot Project

Scope of Work:

We require a spider or robot to search the web for URLs containing a particular string of characters. We prefer the program be written in Perl. All URLs will be printed out to the screen, but those with the search string imbedded will be tagged. This program should have sufficient switches to modify the search parameters.


We have Perl experience, so please do not apply unless you are a Perl programmer that has knowledge & experience with spiders or robots.

When bidding, please provide as much detail as possible, including the length of time you think that it will take, what development tools and modules you will be using, and what will be required of us. Please feel free to ask any questions. Please include any details that you think are important that have not been considered in this document.


Winning bidder will:

- Supply a small sample of your Perl coding

- Be able to communicate in English

- Be available via e-mail

- Be able to receive funds in US dollars via Paypal


50% Beta stage - upon delivery of fully functional beta test code

50% Release - within 2 days of our ability to incorporate and

debug the finished product.

Payment will be made promptly at the end of each stage of completion to our satisfaction. We will not pre-pay for work requested. We reserve the right to cancel the project if we decide that we do not like the direction the project is going. You will of course be paid for any work done up to that point.

Thank-you for your consideration.
