Absolutely, parsing data like that is what Perl does best.
you'll probably want to take a look at the LWP packages. This will help
you pull down the pages from the servers you want to use.
I use these packages currently to download the tour dates page from my
favorite band. Then I compare it to the previous run and email myself
any new dates that are added and removed.
