About

The module provides dynamic retrieval of current currency exchange rates with 5 minute caching of results by default.

The package includes a command-line tool named currency_converter that follows a simple input format for quick conversions.

Check the source code or currency_converter help message for information about the source of the rates, as it occasionally changes due to interface issues.
