Could it be able to be viewed in Hal's window as a ticker tape or have to be in a pop-up window seperate from Hal?
Actually it would be an Auto-Idle function that could be turned on.
User: Hal, Turn on Ticker please.
HAL: I have turned on the Stock market ticker, Are you ready to make some money?
Minutes later from auto-idle: Your Stock BGEN is at $71.00
Minutes later from auto-idle: Your Stock has gained $5.00 please sell BGEN
User: Turn off ticker.
HAL: I have stopped monitoring your stock.
When turned on then auto-idle would announce the stocks price accourding to the timer on auto-idle.
We could give HAL the ability to do some math on the stock price so that if the amount in question is set then HAL will say please sell or buy the stock.
The stock symbol would be set by the Appointment script built into HAL and just add the extra code needed to drive the ticker announcement.
Since Rob knows the ins and outs to HAL better than me, I was hoping Rob could give us an efficient plug-in for just this purpose, It would make HAL very attractive to business investors the more complex the ticker gets.
An interactive Bot broker that can not only give you a stock price but also keep track of it 24-7 to tell one to buy or sell, Investors would go nuts over this.
I would really like to see Rob have the rights to this if he'd like to write it out as a plug-in.
