Updated script to speak the volume of the current trade if it exceeds a threshold and also to speak the running volume each time it increments by a user-specified amount.  This way, you can cook dinner, take a dump, sleep, etc, and still listen for market moves.

--original post---
Below is a simple perl script to login to the experimental telnet server @ bitcoincharts.com and print the volume, price, date (in human format).  

1. This can run on either Linux or Mac (differences in the date command are handled for each).
2. For Mac, you could very easily add a subroutine to speak thresholds using the "say" command. For example:

   `say "Holy shit, someone traded one hundred thousand BTC!"`
  
   If anyone wants an example, let me know...

3. Change the @INC path within the BEGIN block to wherever you've installed the Telnet.pm library, which you can pick up at:

    http://search.cpan.org/~jrogers/Net-Telnet-3.03/lib/Net/Telnet.pm

4. Change the $exchange variable to whatever exchange you want to follow (run 'telnet bitcointcharts 27007' to see what strings they use for the other exchanges.

Happy trading.  Improvements, and other scripts? Dump 'em here.

Thanks!
