    I need to scrape images from Craigslist but WITHOUT being on the specific page with the images. So for example I need to go into the "cars" section and download the images from each of the listings under "cars" in their own folders (so similar images are kept together).

    Anyone know of any script/program that will do this? Should i just learn PHP and write my own? Maybe i need a bot program?

    There isn't something like that, but I think, it should be pretty quite an easy thing to code. I could do it, if I had time. For free.
