I am looking for teams and individuals to create a bunch of parsers for us. A bunch means hundreds of them. They all will collect data from a number of websites which have different files structure. Some have the data as PDF, some have it as TXT files and some others have HTML or ASP.NET pages. So the data sources vary.

We need a single function to grab data for each source and the function will be named as group_1 or group_2 where 1 and 2 are the group ids which we will give to you.

When we pass a source url and a group id to the function it should output the data extracted from the source in an array with a specific format that we will provide you with a sample.

The single function that you create will need to be called like this:
$content = group_ID('group_ID',array('URL-HERE'));

Once called it should output the data in our format.
All field names and values will be separate within the array so we can easily match them and save into the database.

Please provide a quote for 1 grabber. An average price. Some grabbers may be easy to create some hard, some will have images to be grabbed/saved, some wont.

If you are interested, start your message with the word grabber.

Do not spam me with long cover letters, I dont care about your resume. I care about real working samples. Send me a couple of links to the grabbers you have created.
