I’ve finally published the next installment of my mini-series on Emacs Comint. I’ve decided to publish it as a Squidoo lens. In it, I demonstrate how to create a slick, emacs-based interface to a stock price publisher. Part 1 in the series can be found here.

The first version extracts the ticker and price and displays them nicely in a seperate buffer. The later version highlights the updated line by flashing a magenta background for half a second after any update.

The lens covers the following emacs features: comint, process filters, overlays and timers. Let me know any comments or suggestions you have either here or on the lens itself. Please visit my emacs comint lens.
