I wrote up something like that a long time ago.  I used LWP.pm as the main parsing engine.  Unfortunately, that was several jobs ago, so I don't believe I have the source.

But LWP is a fairly simple module to use in perl, so I would recommend that you take this as a great opportunity to be introduced to perl.

perldoc LWP should give you enough guidance to get started.

Not until you get to the point that you need help with the regex.
