( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Fellow Monks,
i am caught on something and i'm in need of your assistance. I am connecting to a Public Folder through outlook and i want to parse through the emails for a given string in a regex but its not finding the string even though i see it if print the variable. Can anyone help?
Thank you
Ray here's my code:
#!D:/perl/bin/perl -w use strict; use Win32::OLE qw(in with); use Win32::OLE::Const 'Microsoft Outlook'; my($Outlook, $ol, $namespace, $Folder1, $Folder2, $Folder3, $Folder4, +$item, $body); $|++; $Win32::OLE::Warn = 3; $Outlook = Win32::OLE->GetActiveObject('Outlook.Application') or Win32 +::OLE->new('Outlook.Application', 'Quit'); $ol = Win32::OLE::Const->Load($Outlook); $namespace = $Outlook->GetNameSpace("MAPI") or die "Can't open MAPI na +mespace: $!"; $Folder1 = $namespace->Folders("Public Folders"); $Folder2 = $Folder1->Folders("All Public Folders"); $Folder3 = $Folder2->Folders("Ops"); $Folder4 = $Folder3->Folders("Search"); foreach $item (in $Folder4->{Items}){ $body = $item->{Body}; print $body . "\n"; #Added to see if i see the string if($body =~ /.*ALL\s+TESTS\s+SUCCESSFULL\s*:/i){ print $item->{Subject} . " ok\n"; } else{ print "possible error on indexer for $item->{Subject}.\n"; next; } }

Here's what the console shows with the print statement added:
onion: 05/13/02 10:41:09 ALL TESTS SUCCESSFUL: EXITING WITH CODE 0 onion: 05/13/02 10:41:09 Updating the Database name and the ActiveState.txt files possible error on indexer for SEARCH: onion storeinfo Indexing Results +.
