And you thought I'd let get away without forcing an XML::Twig version upon you?

Of course you need a recent (3.00.18 or above) version of the module in order to get the parseurl method, otherwise you will need to use LWP to get the text first.

#!/bin/perl -w use strict; use XML::Twig; use constant URL => q{http://perlmonks.org/index.pl?node=chatterbox+xm +l+ticker}; my $t= XML::Twig->new( twig_handlers => { message => \&display_message + }); $t->parseurl( URL); sub display_message { my( $t, $msg)= @_; my $auth = $msg->att( 'author'); my $cont = $msg->text; my $time = $msg->att( 'time'); my ($h,$m,$s) = $time =~ /^\d{8}(\d\d)(\d\d)(\d\d)$/; $cont =~ s/\n//g; $cont =~ s/^\/me/$auth/; print "$h:$m:$s - [$auth] $cont\n"; }
