I would like to be able to have a script that could run as a CRON job that would check the price of an item on a site like eBay or Amazon to keep a watch on it for fluctuations.

Does anyone have a suggestion as to how to implement something like that?

Thank you rproffitt for that very direct and precise answer.

That is why I like this forum. When someone asks a question the answers are generally very helpful.

That looks like exactly what I needed, and gives me a direction to go for finding the same type of information from other platforms.

I appreciate it
Douglas
