I'm wondering if anyone can point me to code to parse data on Google
Finance pages, i.e. parse the results of a URL request such as this
I know how to return the contents of the page; it's figuring out the
best tools to parse it that I'm interested in and hopefully someone has
already done this.
(For what it is worth, the only info I am looking for are the ticker,
exchange, currency and "Mkt Cap" datapoint)
Thanks in advance for any help - scraping is not my strong suit.
