    i have to make a 'converter' program for my html class...
    we are currently learning javascript...

    i would like to make a currency exchange program.. is there anyway i can extract from another website, the current USD exchange rate and plug it into code so that i don't have to prompt the user to enter it?

    i much appreciate any help.
    thanks.

    learn Perl. write an extraction script. call it from within your javascript (if that can be done).
