in reply to Perl server question

You would need to set aside some coding time and lots of coffee.... I'm not sure how you are retrieving the stock information directly, but it would probably be easiest to provide the information to a structured file that could be put on a website either locally or remotely that can be accessed via inet. Getting the information into a usable format would be the trickiest, but publishing the info to a website should be realativly easy, there are some good modules that allow you to send and recieve files over TCP using sockets. Most ISP's provide at least a little web space that you could bury the results page in that could be "scraped" later to get the information. This would probably mean you would need perl at your stock source computer and you laptop so you can proccess the information between the two rather seamlessly.

I did try re-inventing the wheel...
But it kept getting stuck on the corners
