    Hi folks,

    I was thinking of putting a small currency exchange javascript on each of my country profiles (25)

    Just something simple saying 1.24USD = 50 PHP or 1 Euro = 1.24 USD = 50 PHP

    I looked at XE and www.oanda.com the later has something but it's not suitable at all.

    Each one would need to be unique as per the country. Just wondering if any one has seen something small, free and customizable?

    I found coinmill.com so far

    Thanks

    Dave

    A few choices.... I'm not partial to any....

    http://www.tufat.com/s_currency_converter_applets.htm

    http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/a/mac/2001/11/30/scripting_fscript.html

    http://www.hotscripts.com/Detailed/40353.html

    http://webscripts.softpedia.com/script/Calculator-js/JUnitConv-38396.html

    there are tons more..... if you are looking to impliment on your site be sure to try and find something that is easily updated as the rates change...... of course you could pay for a script as well.

    If you want to look for more free stuff.... google "open source currency converters"

    might want to specify your server technology...e.g. php asp java etc....

    HTH

    Thanks for those links. It's just html no php. Coinmill.com seems to be working and delivering what I want. Just a simple text with the rates that I can customize. Where as some of the others give a bulky converter tool, which takes up too much space for what I need.
