I use a Perl program to connect to the Yahoo server to get the stock quote information.
$SERVER = 'download.finance.yahoo.com';
@hostinfo = gethostbyname($SERVER) or die "gethostbyname error: $!\n";
.... # processing in Perl
But these are only for the US stocks. Are there any such servers and services for Chinese or Asia stocks? If ues, I would also appreciate a programming interface example, in C++, php, Perl, or other languages.
