spiders/bots/web crawlers(not sure on correct term)
Does anybody know of any good books on spiders/bots/web crawlers. I'm wanting to write a program that will go to the internet and look at companies stock information and then make a decision to purchase or not. I have found very few books on the subject. Also, what is the best programming language for this type of task? Any suggestions would be very apprciated....Thanks
