( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I think where your going wrong is lack of planning, whenever I start a new project script I try and identify what I actually want to achieve. Try breaking it down into much smaller blocks and work from there. Address each issue in turn and you will find it pulls itself together. A good starting place is to write whatever sub procedures you may need first and add comments, don't even attempt to start coding before you have done this. For your case I would do something like this.
sub input { # Need to receive the input from the user # and perform } sub scan { # Going to receive a directory as a a parameter # Look through each file or directory,and perform # Specific action, if directory call myself with the # path to the directory } sub rename_html { # Receive filename (with path) to be changed # Change the name of the file and return } sub convert_tags { # Receive the filemname( with path) to be converted # Open the file and using a regex will replace http with # Https } sub log { # When we change a file going to keep a record of what is to be # done, recieve filename and a code dependent on what was done. # Write to the log }
Most importantly don't get yourself into a panic just do take one small step at a time. HTH

    [stevieb]: I'm working on it to fatten it up and make it more reliant so I can finalize my Raspberry Pi automated build system for that software :) It's all well and fun, until I try to make it work with Windows lol
    [shmem]: "debugging a program is more difficult than to write it in the first place. If you code your program as smart as you are, you are, by definition, too dumb to debug it."
    [stevieb]: I literally laughed. That's good :) Perhaps I just need to go climb another mountain and forget about it
