I have a script that reads lines of news from a txt file into a channel. As the headlines are financially related, often they have $ signs in them referring to money (obviously!), however, since the script uses several identifiers like $mid etc to return the text, the $ signs in the headline news are ignored, as are any numbers with it. eg '$20mln' is just returned as 'mln'.
I'm wondering if there's a way around this? Would appreciate any ideas!
