What Others Think

I was just about to submit my command, when I found yours. cc(){ wget -qO- "google.com/m/search?q=$1+$2+to+$3" | sed 's/<br\/>/\n/g' | sed -n '4p'; } While mine is shorter, yours is faster. Didn't know about http://www.google.com/finance/converter Can you explain what the '/res/!d' part does in your code? Thanks!
