automatic input and store outputs using perl Can't Post

I have a very specific task, and I am hoping to use Perl to solve it. I have 1500+ company name, city, and state information but I need street address and zip code. Therefore, I want to input the information to www.yellowpage.com and search for the street address and zip code of the company. I understand there might more than one result in the ouput page so I just need to store the first one. For example, on the yellowpage.com if I type KPMG and Los Angeles, CA, it will yield two results. I just want to store the street address of the first one, which is 355 S Grand Ave Los Angeles, CA 90071. Any perl script that can do the task is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Are you asking for suggestions or hoping there is an existing program (very doubtful) or wanting to hire a programmer?

Delete your other thread, asking the same question in two forums is not appropriate.

I am looking for suggestions, so any code which is similar to the task I just described will be very helpful.

Look into using WWW::Mechanize or Win32::IE::Mechanize.
