Grab Yahoo Stock Data streamerapi version

Grab Yahoo Stock Data streamerapi version

Method 1:

$STR = file_get_contents('tmp.txt');

$matchArr = NULL;

preg_match('/parent.yfs_u1f\((.*)\);/', $STR, $matchArr);

if (!empty($matchArr[1])) {
  $ARR = json_decode_v2($matchArr[1]);

  echo '
  echo '
'; } function _grab_yahoo_stock_index_streamerapi($symbol) { $URL = 'http://streamerapi.finance.yahoo.com/streamer/1.0?s=' . $symbol; // l10 // index value // c10 // change value // p20 // change percentage // g00 // day range low // h00 // day rang high // v00 // volume $URL_field = '&k=c10,g00,h00,l10,p20,v00'; $URL_postfix = '&callback=parent.yfs_u1f&mktmcb=parent.yfs_mktmcb&gencallback=parent.yfs_gencb'; $URL = $URL . $URL_field . $URL_postfix; # When using CURLOPT_FILE, pass it the file handle that is open # for write only (eg fopen('blahblah', 'w')). If you also open # the file for reading (eg fopen('blahblah', 'w+')), curl will # fail with error 23. $fp = fopen('tmp.txt', 'w'); $ch = curl_init(); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $URL); # When you are using CURLOPT_FILE to download directly into a file # you must close the file handler after the curl_close() otherwise # the file will be incomplete and you will not be able to use it # until the end of the execution of the php process. curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FILE, $fp); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 3); //curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_VERBOSE, 1); curl_exec($ch); curl_close($ch); # at this point your file is not complete and corrupted. fclose($fp); return; } function json_decode_v2($json, $assoc = FALSE){ $json = str_replace(array("\n","\r"), "", $json); //$str = preg_replace("/([a-zA-Z0-9_]+?):/" , "\"$1\":", $str); // fix variable names $json = preg_replace('/([{,])(\s*)([^"]+?)\s*:/', '$1"$3":', $json); return json_decode($json, $assoc); } ?>

Method 2:
Set PHP curl option, but it doesn't work for me.
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);

Method 3:
Run this in command line (you need curl installed on your system):
curl -s -o - -N 'http://streamerapi.finance.yahoo.com/streamer/1.0?s=^DJI&k=c10,g00,h00,l10,p20,v00&callback=parent.yfs_u1f&mktmcb=parent.yfs_mktmcb&gencallback=parent.yfs_gencb'

the regexp isolates the json of a single qoute, but when you ftech more than one symbol it doesnt work, can you update it to fetch several quotes in one request?

preg_match('/parent.yfs_u1f\((.*)\);/', $STR, $matchArr);

works weel for fetching a single quote but not when you fetch several quotes in one request, can you update it to work for multiple quotes?
