Finance-QuoteHist ----------------- The Finance-QuoteHist bundle is several modules designed to fetch historical stock quotes from the web: Finance::QuoteHist ------------------ Top level aggregator that will select a default lineup of site instances from which to retrieve quotes. Other than the default lineup, this module behaves identically to whichever site-specific module is first in the lineup. See below for site-specific modules. Finance::QuoteHist::Generic --------------------------- The real workhorse of the bundle, a sub class of LWP::UserAgent. Site-specific modules are sub classes of this module. INSTALLATION You install HTML-Element-Extended, as you would install any perl library, by running these commands: perl Makefile.PL make make test make install DOCUMENTATION POD style documentation is included with each module. This is normally converted to a manual page and installed as part of the "make install" process. You should also be able to use the 'perldoc' utility to extract and read documentation from the module file directly. See Changes for recent changes. SUPPORT The source code is tracked on GitHub: https://github.com/mojotoad/Finance-QuoteHist Problems can be reported there. Questions and comments can also be directed to Matt Sisk <email@example.com> AVAILABILITY In addition to GitHub, the library is available from CPAN: http://www.cpan.org/authors/id/M/MS/MSISK/ DISCLAIMER The data returned from these modules is in no way guaranteed, nor are the developers responsible in any way for how this data (or lack thereof) is used. The interface is based on URLs and page layouts that might change at any time. Even though these modules are designed to be adaptive under these circumstances, they will at some point probably be unable to retrieve data unless fixed or provided with new parameters. Furthermore, the data from these web sites is usually not even guaranteed by the web sites themselves, and oftentimes is acquired elsewhere. See the documentation for each site-specific module for more information regarding the disclaimer for that site. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS Thanks to Jim Miner for his generous efforts testing this module.
