Alterations to simple Amazon API script

I currently have a price comparison site using pricetapestry.

A product page such as [url removed, login to view] or [url removed, login to view] shows any result from all merchants containing the "q" query.

We have an amazon script integrated that fetches results from the API, but there have been some problems (shown as the amazon result(s) at the bottom of price comparison)

The things that need to be done are:

Non amazon

1. Only show 2 results from each merchant (top 2 most expensive)


2. Sometimes an error like the following is received (eg. on [url removed, login to view]+LE32R88BD+LCD)- this needs to be fixed:

"Warning: main([url removed, login to view];Keywords=SAMSUNG LE32R88BD LCD&SearchIndex=Blended) [[url removed, login to view]]: failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request in /home/latestel/public_html/html/[url removed, login to view] on line 31"

3. If no results are found for Amazon, then no amazon link should be found

4. If multiple results from amazon are found, then 2 (most expensive) products should be shown

5. Currently the "include" code is:

" <? include("[url removed, login to view];Keywords=".$q."&SearchIndex=Blended");


This needs to be made relative, not absolute, as sometimes it errors due to a DNS problem.

6. Occasionally errors occur on different products with the amazon results - these need to be identified and fixed.


html/[url removed, login to view] - File that shows prices and includes amazon prices file

/cgi-bin/apf4/[url removed, login to view] - file that shows amazon search results

You'll be given full FTP access.

Please see [url removed, login to view] to view relevant files. The actual Amazon script is fully complete and documented.

Project max price is based on [url removed, login to view] (max) work x $10.
