CEG - Currency Exchange Grabber
perl ceg.pl 50 USD JPY
Here is a rough break-down of what each of the ARGV's are needed,
perl ceg.pl ($amount) ($cf - convert from) ($ct - convert to)
This progam's use and reason for being created, is simply for anyo
+ne that wants
to be able to check the exchange rates for different types of mone
+y, such as from
other countries. Say one was going on a trip to Japan, and they l
+ive currently in
the United States. They would need to find out how much money the
+y should bring,
in order to have a good amount, and there isn't an easier way (alm
+ost) than to just
enter in the amount you want converted using CEG and telling it to
+ convert from what
type of money, to the other country's money.
It is a very simple program, and is really the first time I have u
+sed LWP to do
something (useful,) so it could have a lot of new features to add
+in the future, and
possible bug fixes, or efficiency caveats that could be changed, a
+nd so on.
