accessing URL with my small perl program Can't Post

I have got a small problem as a starter.I have written a code that goes to a website and take the content of that website as input.i mange to write a code that does what i want.The difficulty is the webaddress is changing every day.What it changes is the last figure in the URL.say like the last figure could be say 1,2,3 or 4.So my plan is to make the code generate all possible URL's and check for the right one.It will find the right one only if the right one is at the end and there is high probablity that the right one is not always at the end.
How I tried is

system "lynx -dump www......1";
system "lynx -dump www.....2";
system "lynx-dump www....3";

Do you have any idea on how to make it check everything till it gets the right one whether it is located at the end or not?
I really apprciate your help

generating all possible URLS could number in the tens of thousands. Are you sure there is no pattern to how the url changes?
