I want to put industry-related stock prices on my page. Any suggestions?

There is a way to grab them from yahoo using a perl script. It is nicely documented on this site: [xanadb.com...]

Solved it.

I'm using a C# script to parse the CSV feed provided by Yahoo Finance. The RSS version is just converting CSV to XML - I skipped that step and parsed the CSV right onto the page.

I'll add a little caching and this thing will be ready to fly.

Thanks werty!
