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".
