Currency Conversion Can't Post

I would vastly appreciate any help at all regarding this...I am hoping someone knows more or has gotten by doing so themselves...

How on Earth would I go about writing a script which would use the currency specific to a selected country? I have no problem with the technical aspect...just...where would I get the exchange rates from?

Are there any sites that provide such facilities for free and that I can use in such a context? The amount of sites providing currency calculators and rates is overwhelming...but does anyone know the simplest way of providing what I desire?

Thanks much Smile

Legalities depend greatly on your use.

If it's for personal use, you should be okay to use the LWP modules to interface with the Xenon Labs' Interactive Currency Table.

They even offer a plain text output ripe for parsing if so desired.

If not for personal use, then I dunno: all the currency exchange listings I know of usually have Terms of Service that prohibit redistribution of information without express permission.
