Comments: Froogle program with currency conversion

1 comment

If you use Froogle a lot to do price comparisons and end up converting each price you find to your own valuta this Perl program might come in handy. It uses XE.com to obtain the actual conversion rate. Since XE.com forbids automatic extraction this program is an example for educational purposes only.

I get No Result when I try and execute your script. How long ago did you test it. Or am I do something wrong.

I have Perl installed on cygwin with all the necessary Perl packages referenced in the script successfully installed also.
