            Bug ID: 305060
          Severity: minor
           Version: 4.6.2
          Priority: NOR
          Assignee: kmymoney-devel at kde.org
           Summary: Online Price Update question and issue
    Classification: Unclassified
                OS: Linux
          Reporter: mpapet at yahoo.com
          Hardware: Other
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
         Component: general
           Product: kmymoney4

The issue is, the yahoo.com online price updater doesn't seem to work anymore. 
It returns an "Fetching URL
Timeout on server Socket operation timed out
Unable to update price for lsbrx (empty quote data)"

Checking Yahoo, it appears as though they've changed their site.

So, I wrote a script using the documentation here:
I tried to grab the price from yahoo, but I can't get it to work.  The script
returns the following output using symbol example lsbrx, with no quotes.

In the "Online Quotes" dialog box, I have the following:
URL: /usr/local/bin/kmymoney-grabber.pl
SYMBOL: ^symbol.([a-z][a-z][a-z][a-z][a-z])\b
PRICE: |bucks.(\d+.\d\d)\b
DATE: |the_date.(\d\d:\d+:201\d)
DATE FORMAT: %m:%d:%y

Finally, an attempt to use URL:  /usr/local/bin/kmymoney-grabber.pl $1 fails
Any advice on how to fix the regex so it picks the values up?

Reproducible: Always
