Perhaps I wrote this cause it put me in such good company, but.....

This script that will generate a list of monks who have more XP than everyone who signed up after them. For instance George_Sherston makes the list because no one whose homenodeid is higher than 103111 has more than 1282 XP. In otherwords, he's managed to stay ahead of all the newer monks.

Although this is quite silly it does show the power of HTML::TableExtract.

#!/usr/bin/perl -wT use strict; use LWP::Simple; use HTML::TableExtract; my $maxmonks = 2000; my $monksperpage = 50; my $tinymicros = ' +start='; my $te = new HTML::TableExtract( headers => ['Rank','Node ID','Name','Experie +nce'], ); my $offset = 0; while ($offset < $maxmonks) { my $html = get("$tinymicros$offset"); $te->parse($html); $offset+=$monksperpage; } print "NodeID Name Experience\n"; my $maxid = 0; for my $ts ($te->table_states) { for my $row ($ts->rows) { my ($rank,$nodeid,$name,$xp) = @$row; if ($nodeid > $maxid) { printf("%6d %-14s %7d\n",$nodeid,$name,$xp); $maxid = $nodeid; } } }

Here is the current list:

    [moritz]: choroba in python I use jsonschema
    [moritz]: I'm sure there's a Perl implementation of it too
    [choroba]: it seems Kelp and similar help you a lot with dispatching, but how to do something similar with contents?
    [moritz]: like JSON::Schema
    [Corion]: ambrus++ # more bugs than lines
    [Corion]: That's like "works on my machine" ;-)
    [choroba]: I mean, I'd like to say "this path should run this sub, but first it should check the user is authenticated, has the following permissions, and the contents is valid against a given schema
    [ambrus]: no, that means I haven't even tried to run it, might not even parse
    [ambrus]: so it doesn't work on my machine
    [choroba]: i.e. I know JSON::Schema, I'm just curious whether there's a ready solution to plug it into a web service
