not sure how to call perl module from shell script.

I've written a simple perl script to get the price and dividends, see

The 'Dumper' line is to show what is available, the print lines show
how to get single values.

Obviously, you need to install finance/p5-Finance-Quote.

Well, I already had p5-Finance-Quote installed (as part of gnucash!).

The script works just fine, but there's one piece of information that I want but is not shown. The Dumper output returned

          'AAPLdiv' => '2.28',

which is correct for the "Forward Dividend", but I also want to track the "Trailing Dividend" (which, for AAPL, is $2.08).

BTW, the Forward Dividend value is also available via the "cvs" URL without using the perl code.

Thanks for trying!
