( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Before anyone rips me for not using CGI, I want to let it be known that I am unable to use CGI for this application due to the server I will be using it on.
I don't buy that one. Sorry.

If it's a recent usable version of Perl, then CGI.pm came with it.

Even if it's not, CGI.pm is a single file. Download it, extract it from the distribution, and place it in the "current directory", likely the same place as your script, or add a use lib... directive to point to its location.

Even if that option is not available, because they've said "your application must fit in a single file" (a ludicrous requirement, but work with me on this one), you can edit your single file as follows:

BEGIN { ... insert contents of CGI.pm here, stopping just before the __END__ t +oken } BEGIN { CGI->import(":all"); } ... your code goes here ... my $foo = param("bar"); ... more of your code goes here ...
There. No excuses. Use CGI.pm.

    [choroba]: Good morning, Monks!
    [Corion]: And a good daypart to you as well, Lady_Aleena !
    [robby_dobby]: Hey monkeys, do you ever get the realization that you're all waking up to chaos? I suppose not :P
    [Lady_Aleena]: Good morning Corion, I hope you have a wonderful day as well. 8)
    [Corion]: Yesterday I encountered an interesting data structure problem. I have a remote program that emits events, and my client listens for these events with one-shot callbacks, that is, I register the callback and if the event gets generated that callback ...
    [Lady_Aleena]: robby_dobby, every day. Chaos is my life with few controls.
    [Corion]: ... gets called once. The data structure for that is just a hash of arrays, mapping the event type to a queue of registered one-shots, and the first one-shot from the queue gets removed and called.
    [Corion]: But now I want to register a one-shot for two events, of which only one will arrive, so my data structure doesn't work anymore...
    [Lady_Aleena]: Corion, ouchy.
    [Corion]: (maybe I should write this up as a SoPW) - currently, the "most efficient" data structure I come up with is a single array which I scan for the first fitting one-shot. Not efficient but I don't expect more than five outstanding one-shots anyway
