The stock price comes like this: <span id="yfs_l84_$symbol">price</span>, where $symbol is the ticker symbol and price is something like 6.75 (no $ sign)
This is what I have so far:
$content = file_get_contents('http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=$symbol'); preg_match('#<span id="yfs_184_$symbol">#', $content, $match); $price = $match; echo "Price: $price";
I really have no idea what I'm doing with preg_match, and the PHP documentation didn't really help much. When I run this code, I get "error: Undefined Offset: 1," referring to $match.
What am I doing wrong?
