Yes, Perl can be used to process the data. However, I don't know if it can be used to scrape the data. I'd just start with that and collect the data.

For me, looking at historical data is of limited use -- if I were going to write anything is this area, I'd write a training tool to give me feedback and/or support on what my hunch says. And to me, that means real-time processing -- I'd want to be piping the dealer chat into a system that would give me immediate feedback.

So, good luck with your project.

    Yes that's exactly what I want to do, the data I posted was an example of how it appears at each stage of the hand. I will be getting it in real time as the hand goes on and as players make decisions, but I need to know how to get the actions straight into a database.

    If you know of some other way I could scrape the data into an sql data base in real time I could just use perl after that.

    Then work out the rest once I get that far!

    Any site or literature you know I could study to learn this technique would be a great help!
