Script to search flight prices

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

I've made a script that will go on one of the many websites to check airfare and record the prices down for me. I am searching through 8 different date ranges just to check the prices. Currently, I input the first date range, then search and save that information. Then i change the date to the 2nd date range, and so on. Is there a more efficient way of doing this? Launching 8 browsers and having each one do one date range?

Yes, that's possible.

Show us your code and we will see if it can be improved.

There is a lot of code to show here. I basically go to priceline.com and fill in the information on the page for my destination and date. On the results page, I then save the html to a file (out.txt). I change the date to the next date range and append the html to out.txt. After it's done searching, I wrote a Java class to filter out the information I read.

Pseudocode:

$url = "http://hilton.com/tmtp"
$oIE = _IECreate ($url)
_IELoadWait ($oIE)
$dateArray = {8 date ranges}
For $i = 0 to Ubound($dateArray) Step 1
    ;Fill in the form information for destination, date, etc
    ;Hit Search
    ;Save HTML and append to out.txt
Next

Is this enough to show you?
