Hi,

I just wanted to ask how you could go about making a script that draws information from other websites and displays it on your own. For example, say I wanted a script that took currency conversion rates from another website and display them in a section on my own website that updates fairly frequently.

Just a few pointers would be appreciated, such as some functions which could be used etc, nothing too big, I'd like to figure out how to do this myself mostly...after all that's how we learn.

Thanks in advance.
