Surfing Amazon intelligently
Posted on 2006-06-01
I am looking to see if someone has any programming ideas for a specific project. I teach and buy lots of used books from Amazon. The books are always used and each one has a specific group of sellers. I would like to minimze shipping by buying the most books from the fewest sellers. So, I am looking for a way to get at web page data in an automated fashion. In a perfect world, I would like to cycle through several books and their sellers and downlod this information. I can then play with the data in a spreadsheet to minimize the number of sellers. The development langauge is not a critical component - I can bumble my way through most.
