    Well, that's not completely true. The core engine and stuff is all written in C, but the more higher level code is written in LISP.
    So while it's true that the majority of emacs is written in LISP, it isn't like emacs is completely written in LISP.

    Isn't that interesting. I always thought that emacs was strictly written in LISP. It's nice to know that C had some part do with the creation of what I call the best editor in the world.

    about perl

    Hey guys,
    I had a question. There is a website that I go to to get Stock Quotes. There is a certain button there that you have to click to refresh the quotes. Is it possible to write a Perl script so I can somehow automate this clicking or maybe parse the HTTP response to get the numbers?
    Thanks

    I suppose you can use linx (the text web browser) to dump the contents into a file. Once you have the file, you can use PERL to take it apart.

    There is a much easier way to getting the stock quotes then using lynx. There is a module called http-request which can make website request plus fill out forms. I suggest you go to www.cpan.org and use that module. You can have the script run as a daemon and continuesly update you with the lastest quotes. Something like that shouldn't be to hard to code.
