Hi. Many web sites got stock feed and news feed, writen in cgi. How they do that and who can do that? Stock feed like NYSE, which is delayed by 15 minutes but still "good" to attract visitors to your site. News feed like reuters will be a hit. Anyone know how to write or where to get help, please let me know. I'm willing to pay to do that in my web site.

feeds are available from many different sources. reuters feeds are listed on http://www.online.reuters.com/. you can get a financial feed from pcquote.com at http://www.pcquote.com/pcwnew/hyperfeed.html. typically feeds require a wireless/satellite connection to one of your machines, although many companies offer thier feeds through the Internet. you would then probably store the feeds in a database for display on your web site as you see fit. costs for the feeds alone will usually be in the thousands of dollars per month. then you need the hardware, connectivity, custom applications, and manpower to maintain it. i could provide you with further help with this if you want...
