in reply to Script to update your PPM Repositories

At work I am behind a restrictive firewall/proxy that won't let me ping outside. So I have modified your script to use LWP::UserAgent, thus checking the state of the repository via http.

#updateWorkingRepositories.pl use strict; use warnings; use PPM::Repositories; use Net::Ping; use PPM::Repositories; use LWP::UserAgent; my $ua = new LWP::UserAgent; $ua->env_proxy if defined $ENV{HTTP_proxy}; remove_non_active_state_repositories(); add_repositories(); #remove all repositories, except the repositories that come installed +by default with ActiveState. sub remove_non_active_state_repositories { my @repositories; my $result = `ppm rep`; for (split /[\r\n]/, $result) { #parsing lines that looks like #[ 3] jenda my ($number, $repository) = $_ =~ /(\[[^>]*\]\s)(.*)/; if ($repository) { unless ($repository =~ /activestate/i) { print `ppm rep de +lete $repository` unless (/activestate/i); } } } } sub add_repositories { for ( keys %Repositories ) { my $repository = $_; my $location = $Repositories{$_}->{location}; my $domain = trim_domain($location); my $request = new HTTP::Request ("GET" => "http://$domain"); $request->proxy_authorization_basic($ENV{HTTP_proxy_user}, $EN +V{HTTP_proxy_pass}) if defined $ENV{HTTP_proxy}; my $response = $ua->request($request); if ( $response && $response->is_success ) { print "$repository is alive.\n"; print `ppm repository add $repository $location` . "\n\n"; } else { print "$repository is dead.\n"; } } } #function that trims a domain sub trim_domain { $_ = my $original_input = shift; $_ =~ s/^\s+//; #strip spaces at start of string $_ =~ s/\s+$//; #strip spaces at end of string $_ =~ s|^http://||; # strip http:// at begining $_ =~ s|/.*$||; # strip everything after the first / my $trimmed_domain = $_; unless ($trimmed_domain) { logMessage("trim_domain had a problem trimming $original_input +"); carp ("trim_domain had a problem trimming $original_input"); $trimmed_domain = "$original_input couldn't be trimmed in trim +_domain"; } return $trimmed_domain; }
