Description:

This monitors jobs.perl.org (and eventually other sites) for postings of interest. There is separate code for watching the Minnesota Job Bank but since that's very specific, I left it out.

crontab entry to run once an hour, at 32 minutes past.

      It might be - but then I'd have to write more code. As-is, I already have to scrape web pages so it makes some sense to just keep it in the same domain.
