in thread Buffer, buffering my problem

Once again, I am no expert on Expect, but a simple Google turned-up a link to "Expect for Windows" ports, some of which are native (non-Cygwin). Of course YMMV, but one of these ports may be an option...

Also, while the commentary is far from reassuring, the following link indicates that Expect-1.15 from CPAN can be used under Windows, if you can install Cygwin and use its Perl (which sucks, but that's life)...

Yes...I know these "solutions" are definitely suboptimal, but the statement that Expect "was not made for windows" is hugely misleading, given these options, which took only a bit of Googling to find.

[james28909]: yep, i am scraping a websites date/time stamp from an article. none of that is relevant though because the strings i get are as expected. the returned data from the website is the list of @weekdays
[james28909]: i need to convert those @weekdays to an numerical date based off of scalar localtime
[james28909]: i have thught about this and though about it lol
[james28909]: also remember, that if 'Today' is may 1, then Yesterday is not may 31 lol
[james28909]: theoretically speaking ofcourse
[james28909]: so if you subtracting as you loop, be aware that you will eventually be subtracting into a past month, or year <.<
[james28909]: dontcha love it!
