I'm looking to buil a script who will collect information from nhl.com. I have seen this on [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view], www.poolexpert.com. I think that script can be write in PERL but I'm not sure.
The script should collect all nhl players statistics and add the information in my database every morning at 5 AM.
Statistics needed: Player id ( not the rank ) player name, pos, GP, G, A, P, +/-, PIM, PP, SH, GW, OT, S, S%, TOI, SFT/G, FO%
Statistics are located here:
[url removed, login to view]
The script should run a loop or something else because sometimes there are 30 pages of statistics and sometimes only 25 pages, etc...
Every morning The script must delete all entries from table and re-insert the new data. This way I'm sure that every new players are inserted.
The script information must be clear ( because I'm a french canadian ) and easily updatable ( if [url removed, login to view] change their page name or something else ).
