Re: Linking to a stock market price feed.

        I'm also interested in this as well.  Is it possible to 
use the python plugin to pull down pricing from Yahoo Finance
perhaps?  I was also interested in building a datasource that
uses Rendezvous to pull down real-time pricing from a distribution
platform (a la RMDS or TIB).

I'd like to build a gnumeric sheet to go out and load the price cells

Is there a free one or is there an inexpensive one available that would
work with gnumeric?

The infrastructure is there in gnumeric to support it.  However, the
only 'feed' we have a plugin for is a sample version that just reads
keys and value from a named pipe and makes the updates available in
the sheet.  You could use that in conjunction with some of the
existing python/perl modules that pull data off of the web.

Debian has 'libfinance-yahooquote-perl'  There are sure to be
others.  It's not a true realtime data feed, but the limitation is
not technical.  we dont have licenses to reuters or bloomberg.
