I am wondering if anyone can help me. I am looking for help writing a script (bash,perl,whatever) which can determine the latest version of a sourceforge project and download it (then unpack,compile,etc,etc - that part is fine). It seems like a task someone should have done already I would have thought, but searches seem to turn up CVS and SVN type auto update scripts, which I dont think is what I am looking for.
As an example, ill use "sleuthkit" (it is some forensic software I am required to have the latest "proper" release of):
lists many files and releases. the one I would like the script to download is named sleuthkit-3.0.1.tar.gz as of today. but of course the version number will change periodically so 3.0.2, 3.1, 4.0.1...etc.
Has this already been accomplished in some way or will I need to write a parser for the webpage of each software I want to download?!
Cheers for any help!
