|-d DELAY, --delay=DELAY|
|wait DELAY seconds before downloading new data. Default: 300 seconds (5 minutes).|
|-h, --help||display usage information and exit|
|enter the full path to your web browser here. If you enter the path, it will allow you to right click on a stock and go to the Yahoo page to see more information and a chart. Note to lynx users, your best bet for a path is to enter (this will of course load lynx in a new xterm): "xterm -e /usr/bin/lynx" Dont forget the quotes!|
|-l DELAY, --dldelay=DELAY|
**DEPRECATED** wait DELAY minutes between downloading data
and updating the internal data and display
Note: This is no longer needed because I wait for the download child to finish before updating the display.
|display the tickers in reverse order, ie. if you enter them as SUNW HWP EGRP it will show EGRP first, then HWP...|
|-t DELAY, --time2next=DELAY|
wait DELAY seconds between switching the display from one ticker to the next
Default: 10 seconds
do not delete old quote data files out of ~/.wmstock
Note: wmstock will still download and overwrite the old files anyway. I use this for my own debugging purposes, but someone out there may have a reason to use this....
|-o, --open=OPEN-CLOSE TIME|
set the open and close time of the stock market (in 24 hour time format)
relative to YOUR time zone. wmstock will only download quote information
during these times, furthur minimizing bandwidth and CPU usage.
Note: The NYSE/NASDAQ/AMEX are open from 9:30 to 16:00 EST. The quotes from Yahoo are on a 20 minute delay, so you will want to add 20 minutes to this time. Myself, I live in the central timezone, so I also want to subtract an hour. So, for example, I write this... --open=8:50-15:20
|output version information and exit|
|Check the webpage for a new version and exit|
wmstock -o8:50-15:20 --browser=/usr/bin/netscape --delay=10 FDX HWP T OV
Right Click - opens the stock ticker page for the quote that you are looking at.
Left Click - advance to the next stock.
