I used Finance::QuoteHist::Yahoo to pull the historical data I need to operate on the data. So I will set it up to be dynamically called by a form, and print the output right back to the same webpage.

The problem right now is that yahoo doesn't support the ::Yahoo perl module I need to pull the data directly from the form. I can run it on my laptop and push the output to the yahoo server, but that's not sexy. I guess I have three options here:

  • Move it all to a web server somewhere where perl supports the module.
  • Build my own LAMP server and pay for a static IP, then I control the perl modules (I think?)
  • Use the standard modules which Yahoo supports, plus a few more, and write the excruciatingly painful scraper functions from what's available. (yuck)
  • Run some kind of simple http web server from my laptop that lets me map the perl script from my laptop to a public URL. eg. Which maps to my /tmp filesystem on my laptop.
  • I am sort of going down the path of the last option for now, just to get it going. I found one that allows downloading files only (brick something) so I was able to download a file from my laptop just fine. So I imagine there are some that just act as a webserver through a similar public ip address schema?

    Thank you for your reply. Good luck with that value investing thing, I'm an action junkie, so I need to move pretty fast and must have fairly live data.
