I'm on dialup, and don't want to eat merlyns bandwidth, so, here's a little hack entitled

MTV Cache

#!C:/perl/bin/perl -w # generates an mtv cache use strict; my @oops = qw(10 13 28 38 48 55); # columns with double code listings my $mtv = 'perl -T '; my $dat = 'index.dat'; # make sure they match my %dex; $|=1; print "Binding Index\n"; `$mtv action=bindex`; print "reading $dat\n"; open(FILE,"< $dat") or die "$!"; my @dat = <FILE>; close(FILE) or die "$!"; print "generating list\n"; for(@dat) { my($num,$desc)=split(/\t/); chomp $desc; $dex{$num}= $desc; } undef @dat; print "deleting chokers\n"; for(@oops) { delete $dex{$_}; } undef @oops; print "building mtv.cache.index.html\n"; open(OUTFH, '> mtv.cache.index.html') or die $!; print OUTFH q~ <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML Basic 1.0//EN" ""> <html xmlns="" lang="en-US"><head><title>M +TV</title> </head><body text="black" bgcolor="white"><blockquote /><h1>MTV Cache< +/h1>~; for my $key (sort keys %dex) { open(OUTFH2, '> '."$key.mtvcol.html") or die "$key.mtvcol.html $!\ +n"; print "generating $key.mtvcol.html\n"; print OUTFH2 `$mtv getdoc=$key action=view`; close OUTFH2; print OUTFH '<a href="'."$key.mtvcol.html".'"'.">$key.$dex{$key}</ +a><BR>\n"; } print OUTFH q~</body></html>~; close OUTFH;exit; __END__ =head1 DESCRIPTION Just a dirty little script i hacked together in a few minutes, borrowing heavily from mtv. It should work regardless of platform. And it'll take down the server load. Currently, since i'm just capturing the output of, the http header is not stripped. It is kind of refreshing to be greeted by Content-Type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1 It is a "commandline" script, as if you couldn't tell.

Disclaimer: Don't blame. It came from inside the void

perl -e "$q=$_;map({chr unpack qq;H*;,$_}split(q;;,q*H*));print;$q/$q;"
