Perl Script to find & copy words from Web.

I need to write a perl script to search for a specific set of numbers that occur after a series of words but before another. Specifically, I need to locate the phrase today at the summit, then immediately prior to the words tonnes/day copy the number that will be between 100 and 9,999, for example, 400. Then I need to do the same thing further down after the words by the ocean and before tonnes/day and copy that number to a second line on the same text file. Any ideas? Also, should I download the php file with wget or can I simply use a perl command to scroll the webpage without downloading it? Thanks.

Does anyone have any ideas? I need at least the command to search a document and then a command to print text.
