I put the following together to scrape experience, level and writeups off my profile page and store it in a text file on my computer, to record my progress through the Monastery. A scheduled task runs this once a day.
my $date=`ECHO %DATE:~10,4%%DATE:~4,2%%DATE:~7,2%`; # YYYYMMDD
my $url = url('http://perlmonks.org/?node_id=844862');
my $content = get($url);
$content =~ s/\cJ//g;
$content =~ s/\cM//g;
my ($experience, $level, $posts) =
($content =~ /Experience:\D+(\d+).+
open my $ofh, '>>','perl_xp.dat';
printf $ofh "%d,%d,%d,%s\n",$date,$experience,$posts,$level;
Improved version here.
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
Please read these before you post! —
