    yahoo finance

    What I need is maybe a function or some way to use yahoo finances ticker lookup.
    For example, if I didnt know what the symbol for Microsoft was, I could do a search and it would return msft

    Can anyone please help me with parsing/getting the data from it?

    LOL, does anyone else feel like this post has been a hot potato being bounced from forum to forum?

    Anyways... now that you're here I do have a suggestion for you... you could perhaps use the Perl LWP::UserAgent lib or PHP's CURL library to do a remote HTTP POST to the Yahoo! Finance area to pull down the info on a desired stock and then parse it out.

    In terms of the actual string parsing, that would be a bit tricky... if you need a reference from a programmer who could do it, PM me and I'll let you know a few folks who might be able to assist you that we've contracted with in the past ourselves. - Trusted Merchant Account Solutions since 1998
