in reply to Looking for news crawler module

The only caveat I would put out there for news crawlers is that if you are going to use Google as your source, please, please, please read their usage requirements. They are extremely touchy about automated processes using their data.

And on that note, may I point you at a new book by O'Reilly

[james28909]: id just rename the subrouties perl what kind of data they are getting. something easy to remember too. like if get_data were returning movies titles, rename get_data to movies or movie_titles or get_movie_titles.
[james28909]: s/perl/per/
[james28909]: but i dont really know what your end goal is. if it works dont fix it lol
[Lady_Aleena]: james28909, I use get_data in a subroutine called movies.
[Lady_Aleena]: james28909, I put it at the top of my scratchpad, if you want to look at it.
