Stock market company codes?

hi i’m building a little app to return the stock prices for companies
using their company codes, e.g. Google Corp => GOOG

All going good, but the major problem stopping me is getting a list of
all possible company stock codes?

at the moment i’ve just got MSFT (microsoft) and APPL (Apple Corp) +
Google.

Anyone know where to get some more?

try these

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_stock_exchanges
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Companies_listed_on_the_New_York_Stock_Exchange_(A)

am I on the right track?

nice, thanks for those, will see what i can cobble together.

actually found a load on Yahoo’s site but they weren’t that easy to
scrape off their website, these may be a little easier.

appreciated and have a great weekend,

John.
