( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Why would you assume that it is safe to convert every backslash in the entire Perl CD Bookshelf to a forward slash? This would blindly ruin every example in the suite of CD books! That's a case of throwing out the baby with the bathwater. Could you imagine reading the Camel book where someone has gone through it and changed every single backslash to a forward slash? The first hello world script would look like this:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w print "Hello world!/n";

...and for the record, "/n" is not the same thing as "\n".

No, the OP realy does probably need a token parser like HTML::TokeParser, and a routine a little smarter than blind transliteration.

One thing about the OP's post does bother me though. Does this conversion of file:\\\ to http:// mean that he's going to be making available ONLINE the entire Perl CD Bookshelf, in violation of O'Reilly's copyright?

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
