EDGAR, the Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval system is responsible for the collection and dissemination of all submissions filed by companies and others required by law to do so by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). This paper discusses an on-going project using Perl to provide analysts and customers a flexible tool to access the EDGAR data. The scope of the project is as follows: parse the EDGAR submissions; update remote databases with the parsed metadata; archive the submissions on multiple remote web servers; and provide a web application for users to view, query, print, etc. the submissions from the archive.
