Obviously it was too late when I wrote this so not only did I forget to include the link, but also did not notice the subtle difference between Finance::QuoteHist and Finance::Quote. I understand that QuoteHist is more limited in most respects compared to F::Q.

John, where did you take the information that it is unmaintained since 2013? In CPAN bug tracking I see the last patch was being included 5 month ago (this year).


From the version information on CPAN; I didn't notice the link to the latest version (1.24) at the top of the page. After a little more Googling I found his Github page: <> where one can see that 1.24 was released last June.
