( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
First, do any of my fellow monks have experience using an XML/Perl/CGI-driven website (ie: one in which data files are stored in some variant of XML (could even be proprietary) and the main functions of the site are carried out by a Perl/CGI script that acts as the orchestrator and what not), and specifically, how well this setup translates into foreign data exchange.
How about... *drum roll* perlmonks.org? ;)

Search for "XML Ticker" in the search box, and you'll come across the Other Users ticker, the Chatterbox Ticker, and a few others. As far as I know, all the data on this site is stored as XML, with pages generated by perl & CGI.

As far as foreign data exchange, it seems to work well enough... there are a bunch of Chatterbox Clients, in various programming languages (like Java), that parse the various XML files and do useful things. (I know there's a more extensive list of CB clients somewhere, but can't seem to find it at the moment.)

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.
