G'day cacharbe,

pjf here, in all his glory. *grin* I didn't actually realise that Yahoo provided a CSV of stock-quotes, although it's certainly not surprising. I agree that using a CSV interface is far superior to dissecting the HTML.

I actually owe Finance::Quote a couple of good solid weeks of testing, applying patches, and making everything well and whole again.

For what it's worth, I have a couple of patches that have been submitted which should remove F::Q's reliance upon Yahoo for currency information. This is a very good thing, as you may have noticed that Yahoo forbid you re-distributing their information to third parties by, say, putting it on a web-page. ;)

For the record, I have no problems whatsoever in other people figuring out the best way to do things for my benefit. :)

All the very best,
