I've been looking for a stock market overview script that I can insert into a page. Just like the one on:

http://www.quotemedia.com/demoarea/markets.php

The ones on the right are the type of thing I'm looking for. Basically just an overview of the most popular markets out there. (DOW, TSE, etc) Things like that.

I've been looking around and the only things I can find are really expensive and I'm just looking for something cheap or free.

uh....it's not really a language applicable thing. As you can see those things are really just a chart-type thing with numbers. It doesn't really have anything on it that is any specific language. Same thing applies to stock quotes because those just have a 3 or 4 letter stock ID, but that's always going to be the same letters regardless of language. For example, Microsoft stock will always be defined as MSFT. They would change it to something else if it was being displayed in French because that's the nickname for the stock.

However, it would be in english if there was any.

Uh, I meant programming language.  "Script" is rather generic...

ah...now I get what you were trying to say. The ones that I'm most familiar with are Java, javascript, and PHP, but as long as it will integrate into any webpage then I don't really care.

Sorry about the mixup. I wasn't thinking along that wavelength when you said language....

Use an HTTP Request to query the page.  Get the resulting HTML stream and load it in your page.

As long as you're not accessing secured content, I think you're ok.

PS- are there any good pages about doing the HTTP request that you know of. I haven't tried this before.

I'd post to the one of the language channels.  The syntax varies, and I'm a .NET guy.
