Say I want to make a perl script that will automatically download something once a week, or month perhaps.
Specifically, I want to keep an updated version of the Cosmic database on my local machine. This database can be accessed by going here http://www.sanger.ac.uk/genetics/CGP/cosmic/, clicking the biomart option, then selecting run results, and download to file. How might one automate these steps in a script?
I am not asking anyone to write this script for me, but if you could give me some pointers or direct me to some relevant tutorials or reading that would be superb! Thanks!
