in reply to Grabbing data from a java applet

I agree with what both stephen and dws said, and I have had some really good luck with Finance::Quote on a variety of sites. I would think that using a full Java applet would be somewhat overkill - I assume that you need to get the stock quotes from the applet to display on a dynamically generated page? If so, then the overhead needed to load the Java applet would be much greater than the overhead to just execute a CGI script.

And as dws said, unless you are writing the Java applet yourself (in which case I imagine that you would already know how to pass data to the perl script), I doubt that you want to reverse engineer the whole applet :). Just my $0.02!

[stevieb]: use metamod::DateTime. Don't fsck around. Seriously. As someone who's done sensitive date/time stuff, don't roll your own. Use what is available and known stable. Do not guess.
[stevieb]: Date::Time even
[stevieb]: ffs I can't make DateTime link properly, so there.
