Mashup to pull affiliate content from 7 providers in PHP

Hi, I need a searchable PHP5 script that will automatically login with username/password then aggregate affiliate content/links that I am currently approved for from the following networks and write to flat XML files based on 5-7 basic categories (like "clothing", "food", "automotive" etc...):

- [url removed, login to view]

- [url removed, login to view]

- [url removed, login to view]

- [url removed, login to view]

These (4) would go into a folder on the server titled "affiliate_networks".

Separately the same script will then similarly query the leading Daily Deal networks and save those to a directory titled "daily_deals"

- [url removed, login to view]

- [url removed, login to view]

- [url removed, login to view]

It is preferred any results pulled from [url removed, login to view] will override the same deal pulled from [url removed, login to view] (only). What I mean is, [url removed, login to view] is paying whenever someone buys a [url removed, login to view] deal through them so I want the affiliate commission from [url removed, login to view] - while Groupon is not paying, but I still want their content irregardless. If the same deal is found on BOTH [url removed, login to view] and [url removed, login to view], the link should point to the [url removed, login to view] URL.

The XML for each affiliate content grab would need to have the following:

-Store Name

-Title of deal

- Short Description

- Long Description

- Value (meaning if it's 10% off or $5 off $10, either would be fine)

- Expiration Date

The flat XML files would be overwritten every 24 hours, so this script will check when each flat file was last modified by file date and if it's been less than 24 hours leave it alone otherwise run the update.

Lastly I need to be able to enter a keyword search, choose which category from a dropdown list to run this search against, and have a page display these results as formatted HTML. For instance, if I submit a form post for the word "Wal-Mart" and chose the "clothing" category, it would look in the clothing flat XML for anything from Wal-Mart and spit that out onto the screen in human readable format. Pretty simple, bonus points for how accurate you can make the search engine work with as little CPU overhead as possible. If I were to enter "Walmarts" (one word) and your search could figure out I'm looking for "Wal-Mart" (two words without the trailing "s") that would be a really big plus in determining who is chosen for this project but is not required. This script is intended to be implemented into a high traffic production environment so as quick & efficient as possible is desired.
