in reply to Compare Date

This may be too simplistic, but can't you use this to give you the current day and just compare it to your database via an if statement?:
$day=(localtime(time))[3];

[ambrus]: Corion: as for that, I talked with schmorp, and looked a bit more at Prima
[ambrus]: Corion: from the docs, it definitely looks like it would be possible to write an AnyEvent driver for it using Prima::File and Prima::Timer.
[ambrus]: (I haven't found an idle event.)
[ambrus]: However, I also looked at the internals, and found two interesting things:
[marto]: stupid xpath question, I have a xpath copied from the browser, is the * wildcard supposed to work for IDs? e.g. '//*[@id="*"]/ div/div/header/p/a '?
[ambrus]: The main loop for unixish systems is in https://metacpan. org/source/ KARASIK/Prima-1. 49/unix/apc_app.c. It is a hand-rolled select loop, but also always spins at least once every 0.2 seconds for some reason.
[ambrus]: marto: no, not that way. if you just want to test for an existing id attribute, then write *[@id] , or you can match a regexp to the value of that attribute like *[@id=~/something/ ]
