Quote database APIs

  1. Is anyone familiar with some reference to accessing
    various quote databases (whether historical, realtime,
    free, or pay access) when writing their own client program
    (Java, Perl, Python, whatever)?

    I'm not interested in using a seperate application to
    download data to local files, just acessing the server
    database directly. I can see how URL hacking and CSV
    parsing can be used to get data from Yahoo, but I was
    looking for something more general.
