vtticker is a perl script that grabs pages from videotext/teletext
(using alevt-cap) and transfroms them to RSS, a form of XML which can be read
by knewsticker (part of KDE).
As videotext contains high-quality news and stock quotes - at least the stations in Germany -
I thought it would be quite useful.
If you want to use it you need a subscript that is specific to your stations.
Currently available scripts:
If you can't find your station here, and you're either familiar with regular
expressions or want to learn it, then write your own!
A sample script with detailed comments is included in the package.
I wrote the scripts in Perl, but since they are call as an extra process
(using Perl's qx()), it should be possible to write them in any other language like Python.
