Yeah, but you are cheating by putting the braces on the same line as the sub name and whatnot. ;-)

Seriously though, nice to see more examples. Those modules really makes hard things really simple sometimes. I was insanely surprised when I discovered how XML::Simple worked - it did what? Create a data structure you can just burrow into that easily? It was amazing. :)

Having just discovered that XML::Simple was just as simple to use as LWP::Simple, I was very happy about this fact and wanted to whip up a small demonstration of how easy things can be if you just use modules. By choosing to (poorly) imitate the chatterbox nodelet, I think I covered quite a broad spectrum, with a few good modules and very little code. Or effort, for that matter. :)

It was also very rewarding when someone posted the html code for the "sexisgood" submit button in the chatterbox, and it showed up in the middle of the chat in my version. I'm thinking to never fix that. :)

You have moved into a dark place.
It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

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.
