Hi there. I haven't been hear in a while. I was hoping that someone maybe able to help me. I wanted to write a program which was able to get certain share prices off yahoo finance, and then save things like the open price, close price, change etc in a file.
One way I have thought about doing it, is to 'hardwire' all the symbols of the companies I want to monitor into an array, and then just make it go to http://uk.finance.yahoo.com/q?s=??? where the ??? at the end is the code of the company from the array. It would then have to look at the source code for things like the open price etc, and then just have to save them to a file. The saving to a file bit isn't the problem, its more the getting the program to connect to the internet, go to the site, and search the source code, so most of it lol.
In the past, I've normally programmed in C++, but I want to do this in C, to make it that much harder ;p
