Angry Sheriff verson 0.1

What is it?

It is a UNIX shell script to download NJ foreclosures (sheriff's sales in New Jersey) from web site. It can be modified to download similar real estate foreclosure listings in other states, if URL of a web page with such info is available.

How to use it?

No root access is required / recommended to run the program. From your UNIX/Linux computer, click on link above and download it into your home directory.
Then type "chmod +x asheriff".
After that, launch the program by typing "./asheriff dir-name" where dir-name is name of directory. If it is an existing directory, the program expects in it files it downloaded previously. It is a non-existing directory, the program would create one, download all necessary files and then create a final output file, dir-name.list. I recommend choosing the name of the current month as the directory name and that you run the program once a month.


First time usage: Type "./asheriff august"
august is a directory that does not exist already. So the program will create directory august, download necessary files into it and then create a final output file called august.list

Re-running without downloading any files, i.e. using an existing directory:
Type "./asheriff july"
Where july is an existing directory.
