Stock Quotes

StockSearch is a nifty little application that retrieves Stock Market data using the Yahoo! Finance API. This is the first time I’ve used HTTP in an application.

HTTP requests are handled using the libcurl library.

The app maintains a list of all known stock ticker symbols from the NASDAQ and NYSE. It uses this list to find Companies matching the name or symbol that the user has entered. As of now, the list cannot be updated (The functionality exists in the code but has been commented out).

The app has been written in C++ (Visual C++), The GUI has been written for win32 and hence will not compile on other platforms.
