// Name: Yahoo stock quotes
// Description:Displays stock quotes from yahoo on your site .
// By: ihservices (from psc cd)
// Returns:Good news on your stocks hopefully :-)
// Assumes:Someone sent this to my email , too good not too share with others . A slightly better version with user input and tidier output can be found at http://www.mywebresources.co.uk/php/quotes.htm
// Side Effects:You have to change the MSFT in the line $quote->get_stock_quote("MSFT"); to whatever ticker symbol you wish unless you only wish Microsoft.
e.g SUN , FORD

Class yahoo
function get_stock_quote($symbol)
$url = sprintf("http://finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?s=%s&f=sl1d1t1c1ohgv" ,$symbol);
$fp = fopen($url, "r");
echo "error : cannot recieve stock quote information";
$array = fgetcsv($fp , 4096 , ', ');
$this->symbol = $array[0];
$this->last = $array[1];
$this->date = $array[2];
$this->time = $array[3];
