Hi Monks,

I thought somebody might be interested in mine

It is in Perl (it's quite simple but it works).


Here it is a sample. But please look into Sourceforge if you really want to use it. Greetings!

#!/usr/bin/perl # # V 0.9 04/08/2008 17:02 +:00 # open (INFILEHANDLE, "<table.txt") or die "error opening"; open (OUTFILEHANDLE, ">table.html") or die "error opening"; while (<INFILEHANDLE>) { chomp; if ($_ eq "") { print OUTFILEHANDLE "<B><\/B><BR>\n\n<HR>\n"; # was an empty line } else { s/\t/ /; #join 1st & 2nd field (comment this if undesired) s/\t/ <\/B><BR>\n/; # 1st fields will be bold so we have a <\/B> s/\t/ <BR>\n/g; # remaining fields will end with <BR> print OUTFILEHANDLE "<B> $_ <BR>\n<HR>\n"; # record separator will + be <HR> } } close INFILEHANDLE; close OUTFILEHANDLE; print "\nFile table.html created (press a key)\n"; $line = <STDIN>;
