Need an updated web spider scraping program written for the following username JLM8203

I need a web scraper written for the .xls file in the following directory:

[login to view URL]

The latest .xls file within that directory will need to be downloaded.

The name of the file is subject to change daily and will need to be identified by the latest .xls extension.

The output should be a pipe (|) delimited file with the following column mappings:

origin_city --> data located in column "A"

origin_state --> data located in column "B"

ship_date --> the date from column "E" changed to the YYYY-MM-DD format

destination_city --> data located in column "C"

destination_state --> data located in column "D"

receive_date --> leave blank

chicago|IL|2017-03-15|new york|NY|

The deliverable will be a Perl .pl file that must run on

Ubuntu Linux and must use Modern::Perl. The Perl .pl file

Please specific what language/OS/modules you plan to use.
