Perl module for retrieving stock quotes from a variety of sources


Finance::Quote gets stock quotes from various internet sources all over the world. Quotes are obtained by constructing a quoter object and using the fetch method to gather data, which is returned as a two-dimensional hash (or a reference to such a hash, if called in a scalar context). For example:

 $q = Finance::Quote->new;
 %info = $q->fetch("australia", "CML");
 print "The price of CML is ".$info{"CML", "price"};

The first part of the hash (eg, "CML") is referred to as the stock. The second part (in this case, "price") is referred to as the label.
