One of my students wants to get stock quotes from Yahoo Finance for his project, so I wrote a bit of code to do a HTTP GET and regular expression.  I am a bit out of touch with what has been going on with scraping/web-related stuff in oF, but I recently got a request for a scraper addon that I helped write forever ago, and I wasn’t able to quickly find anything much newer, so I thought this might be useful.  It actually takes advantage of the Poco library, which is now part of the standard oF distribution, so anyone can use it without getting any additional addons.
