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.Quote:

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.
I have no idea what you guys talking about. LOL
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?
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.
Why dont build a autorefresh utility to do that for you instead??
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.
Thanks for the advice guys. I am going to try all of your suggestions out.
