in reply to (OT) Does anyone know of a common object repository?

I'd suggest OpenCyc, but seems to be down right now. :-(

There is UMBEL too, which gives you classes with subclass/superclass relationships, but not a list of properties you might associate with a lamp. e.g.

The ontology (here in RDF) is quite well-curated, but not extensive enough to have a specific class for lamps - the closest appears to be its "Product" class.

perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'

    Thanks for all the feedback!

    Looks like their are several promising projects doing this sort of thing (at some level).
    A WordNet type of approach looks interesting (and complex). UMBEL might be on the right track.

[ambrus]: Corion: as for that, I talked with schmorp, and looked a bit more at Prima
[ambrus]: Corion: from the docs, it definitely looks like it would be possible to write an AnyEvent driver for it using Prima::File and Prima::Timer.
[ambrus]: (I haven't found an idle event.)
[ambrus]: However, I also looked at the internals, and found two interesting things:
[marto]: stupid xpath question, I have a xpath copied from the browser, is the * wildcard supposed to work for IDs? e.g. '//*[@id="*"]/ div/div/header/p/a '?
[ambrus]: The main loop for unixish systems is in https://metacpan. org/source/ KARASIK/Prima-1. 49/unix/apc_app.c. It is a hand-rolled select loop, but also always spins at least once every 0.2 seconds for some reason.
[ambrus]: marto: no, not that way. if you just want to test for an existing id attribute, then write *[@id] , or you can match a regexp to the value of that attribute like *[@id=~/something/ ]
