Only the electoral votes matter. Here is my offering:
perl -Mstrict -MLWP::Simple -we "$_=get('http://www.cnn.com');($a)=/Go +re\D*(2\d\d)<\/span>/m;($b)=/Bush\D*(2\d\d)<\/span/m;print+($a>270?'G +ore Wins':$b>270?'Bush Wins':'Undecided'),$/;"
That's all one line. If your browser added a plus sign, remove it. The only one in my code is print+($a
Oh, and I already have a T-Shirt, but I really want a Mug!

Oh, to have this send you the result as an e-mail just append this to the end (on Linux, or wherever 'mail' is available)

| mail -s 'Election Results' adam@perlmonks.org

Update: After some thought I realized that you would only want to be e-mailed when the results were in. So how about:

perl -Mstrict -MLWP::Simple -we "{$_=get('http://www.cnn.com');($a)=/G +ore\D*(2\d\d)<\/spa/m;($b)=/Bush\D*(2\d\d)<\/spa/m;$@=($a>270?'Gore W +ins':$b>270?'Bush Wins':0);die `echo $@ | mail -s Results adam@perlmo +nks.org`,$@,$/ if $@; sleep 600; redo}"

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
