Need new web spider scraping program written for the following username DFUSER8493

I need a web scraper written for the .xlsx file in the following directory:

[login to view URL]

The latest .xlsx file within that directory will need to be downloaded.

The name of the file is subject to change daily and will need to be identified by the latest .xlsx extension.

All information needed is available on the main page. The number of rows will vary.

The output should be a pipe (|) delimited file with the following column mappings:

origin_city --> data located in Column B

origin_state --> data located in Column C

ship_date --> data located in Column A, change to the YYYY-MM-DD format

destination_city --> data located in Column D

destination_state --> data located in Column E

receive_date --> leave blank

trailer_type --> data located in Column F

load_size --> data located in Column G

weight --> data located in Column O, add three zeros to the end of the

data if there are only 2 numbers (ie. 48 = 48000)

length --> data located in Column N

width --> leave blank

height --> leave blank

trip_miles --> data located in Column H

pay_rate --> data located in Column M

contact_phone --> leave blank

contact_name --> add data from Columns J & K

tarp_required --> leave blank

comment --> data located in Column L

load_number --> leave blank

commodity --> data located in Column I

The first line of the output should contain all of the column headers.

Any field that contains no data should be left blank.

Please do not use words like "null" or "blank" in blank columns.

Below is a sample output of the first 5 columns using sample data:


chicago|IL|2017-03-15|new york|NY|

kansas city|MO|2017-03-15|houston|TX|

The deliverable will be a Perl .pl file that must run on

Ubuntu Linux and must use Modern::Perl. The Perl .pl file

should be called '[login to view URL]' and the output file should be

called '[login to view URL]'

It will be scheduled in cron to run unattended every 15 minutes.

Please specific what language/OS/modules you plan to use.

Also, please include the word "raccoon" in your bid so I know that

you read this description.
