Since this weekend Zorro seems to fail to download historical price data from yahoo. The following code can reproduce that:

function run()
	assetHistory("AAPL", FROM_YAHOO);

I get "Error 056: Can't download AAPL from Yahoo" (this is with Zorro 1.50.6). With Zorro Beta 1.56.3 I get "Bad - can't parse History\history.csv".

But I don't understand why that is. I have internet connection and I am able to download the prices in my browser when I follow this link:

Can someone reproduce this issue?

Same error for me. No way to download from Yahoo, also with different code:

// Download historical price data from Yahoo
function main()
  int id = http_post("",0);
  if(!id) return;
    if(!wait(100)) return; // wait for the server to reply
  int length = http_status(id);
  if(length > 0) { //transfer successful?
    string content = (string)malloc(length);
    http_result(id,content,length); // store price data in large string
    free(content); // release the string
  http_free(id); //always clean up the id!

it hangs on "compiling...."

Any help?
