Craigslist Scraping Tool

A Craigslist scraping tool is fairly simple. It crawls all over the postings on Craigslist to look for specified types of postings. It then "scrapes" them off of the website and into a short list. One can then find a small sampling of the posts that interest them without digging through pages of unrelated information. This gathering tool is perfect for anyone wanting to run a website showing specialized listings to interested visitors, or even just an interested person who doesn't want to dig through all of the trash that clogs the channels. One popular usage occurs on various work-at-home websites, which gather the information on telecommuting jobs and post the relevant information on their website.
