Write a PHP program that downloads stock quotes CSV from Yahoo from [url removed, login to view], for example, [url removed, login to view] will download a CSV of IBM.
This should be a Linux console application (you can execute wget/curl), that in its command line receives several tickers (like IBM MSFT GOOG etc.), downloads them, and outputs the following output in CSV:
// first line is titles
Date,time_t,[url removed, login to view],[url removed, login to view],[url removed, login to view],[url removed, login to view],IBM.C/O,IBM.C/C,IBM.H/L,[url removed, login to view],[url removed, login to view],[url removed, login to view],....
C/O is the open/close (division)
C/C is the close divided by the close of the previous day
H/L is open/low
time_t is the linux time_t for the date in the file. long int.
there also should be a possibility to specify in the command line which of the columns above to output. The user can select to output only a part of them.
In addition to the above specified columns, there should be another possibility to add more columns of the form IBM.Open.1 which will be the [url removed, login to view] on the previous day, and IBM.Open.2 which will be the [url removed, login to view] 2 days ago, etc. The command line interface should provide a simple way to specify this info, or instead of command line, a text config file.
The code must be well documented, to be maintained by developers who are not familiar with PHP.
