in reply to Perl/Tk Chatterbox Client

These patches fix the Perl/Tk chatterbox client (or so it would seem).

Please test and let me know if there are any problems.

  • Fixed Getopt::Long exception when monkchat is run with the '--debug' or '-d' option:
    Unknown option: s -d Bad options! at ./latest_chat.pl line 106.
    Call to open2() passed command line arguments as list, appending the '-s' and optional '-d' switches as a single string ("-s -d"). When open2() is called with a list of command line args, the shell's word splitting doesn't take place, so "-s -d" is parsed as option switch '-s' with value '-d'.
  • Fixed XML parsing patterns in both Chat.pm and monkchat to accomodate recent changes to the chatterbox XML ticker output.
  • Made a few changes to style to make some of the code easier to read. This is probably an evil thing to do, my apologies.
  • Localized $_ in a few places where it looked like it needed to be done.
  • Fixed pet peeve: "Noone" is not a word. :)

    In case some poor soul wants to test the patched listed in OP, note that "dalnet-perl.org", as of Mar 19 2006, goes to "Porn Guide".

Chatterbox?
[Lady_Aleena]: Why does grep(/.*$in.*/, @my_modules) work but grep { $_ =~ /.*$in.*/; $_ } @my_modules not work? What did I do wrong in the second?
[tobyink]: Why are you returning $_ n your grep block? You should return a boolean.
[tobyink]: *in your grep block
[tobyink]: You can use grep { $_ =~ /.*$in.*/; } @my_modules but why not stick to grep(/.*$in.*/, @my_modules)? (The latter is faster.)
[shmem]: Lady_Aleena, in the first example grep evaluates the result from grep and if true, returns $_. In the second, it always returns $_
[shmem]: ..the result from the pattern match
[Lady_Aleena]: tobyink, I did after I failed to get the BLOCK to work. I can't seem to get my brain around grep BLOCK, though I'm okay with grep EXPR.
[shmem]: so in the second example grep returns all true elements of the list passed
[Lady_Aleena]: Okay, so grep BLOCK is not like map BLOCK where something might need to be returned at the end.
[tobyink]: grep { $_ =~ /.*$in.*/; } @my_modules should work just fine. The problem is that you were adding on ;$_ at the end of the block. Why were you doing that?
