  sub own_fetch_rate{
        my ($cur_from, $cur_to) = @_;
        my $browser = LWP::UserAgent->new;
        my $response = $browser->get( "http://finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?e=.csv&f=sl1d1t1&s=".$cur_from.$cur_to."=X" );
        my $data = $response->content();

  }
  
  

DESCRIPTION

Finance::Currency::Convert::Custom should be useful for people, who needs to have own rates or have own methods for fetching them, but who likes Finance::Currency::Convert. Its needed because of Finance::Currency::Convert strong dependency of Finance::Quote. The last module fails a lot last time.
