Achievements Steaming ahead

I play a bit of Civ V. Like many games these days I downloaded it using Steam and one of the "features" of the system is that Steam keeps track of various in game achievements. So, silly me, I've been sucked into playing the "get the achievements" meta game.

Which is all very fine, but Steam doesn't do a great job of showing you the achievements. It doesn't seem able to sort them in the order that they have been achieved so sometimes it can be hard to know if you got that last thing or not. So, Perl to the rescue! The following script parses the Copy & Pasted achievements list from the Steam page and sorts them, first list the "not yet achieved" entries, then the achieved items sorted by the order that they were achieved.

use strict; use warnings; my %monthOrd = ( Jan => 1, Feb => 2, Mar => 3, Apr => 4, May => 5, Jun => 6, Jul => 7, Aug => 8, Sep => 9, Oct => 10, Nov => 11, Dec => 12, ); my @records = grep {/\n/ and /[^\n]/} do {local $/ = "\n\n"; <DATA>}; s/^\n+|\n$//gs for @records; for my $record (@records) { my @lines = split "\n", $record; $lines[0] //= ''; my ($day, $month, $year, $time) = $lines[0] =~ /(\d+)\s+(\w+)(?:, +(\d+))?\s+\@\s+(\S+)/; if(defined $month && exists $monthOrd{$month}) { $year ||= 2018; $lines[0] = sprintf "%04d %2d %2d %7s", $year, $monthOrd{$mont +h}, $day, $time; } else { unshift @lines, ''; } $record = \@lines; } # Sort records by not achieved first. Remove blank lines from records @records = map {$_ = [grep {$_} @$_]; $_} sort {$a->[0] cmp $b->[0]} @ +records; print join "\n", @$_, '', '' for @records; __DATA__ Unlocked 18 Feb, 2016 @ 11:39pm First in the Hearts of Your Countrymen Beat the game on any difficulty setting as Washington.
