  • Automating file downloads from Yahoo Finance

    My only internet programming trick so far is to grab web pages and extract their content. It has been very useful.

    It is about time I learnt another one, even better if it was how to automate the downloading of historical price data from Yahoo Finance. To get this data one has to click a button on the Yahoo web page and receive a file.

    Any suggestions please?
