Apple Read version from a webpage and Upgrading the file.


I am trying to read version from a web url like <url/daily-builds/> [here v20140312170355 denotes date-time]
and download and store in my filesystem if its the latest.

Kindly help me how to read version 3.2.v20140312170355 and compare same with a folder named similar in my directory and download the latest if not already downloaded.
I have tried curl -O <url/daily-builds/>

which only downloads the file for me without checking that its the latest or not.
