Quick Web Scraping project using PHP & phpQuery
I need a php scraping script written for 2 specific webpages. Simple scraping of data from a table layout.
I would think that anyone proficient in phpQuery or DOM should be able to do this in less than an hour.
- scrape 2 unique pages of moderately repetitive tabular data into php array variables (30 rows, 10-15 columns)
- use the DOM/libxml-based phpQuery
- integrate CSS3 selectors as necessary so i can modify the code for other pages
- mask the user agent so that the scraping is less obvious

You're right. it's amazingly easy to scrape, especially with phpQuery. I can do this several ways, but phpQuery seems to be the best. I also know CSS3.. Thanks, Josh
