Want a new quote script? This will output a picture of a quote in a quote file with quotes on seperate lines. It will even auto-size itself to the quote.
#!/usr/bin/perl use CGI::Carp; use GD; my $quote = &getquote; my $img = GD::Image->new(length($quote)*8+30,46); my $white = $img->colorAllocate(255,255,255); my $black = $img->colorAllocate(0,0,0); $img->transparent($white); $img->string(gdLargeFont,15,15,$quote,$black); print "Content-type: image/jpeg\n\n"; binmode(STDOUT); print STDOUT $img->jpeg; sub getquote { open FILE, 'quotes.txt' or die "Can't open quotes.txt: $!\n"; my @quotes = <FILE>; close FILE; chomp(@quotes); my $quote = $quotes[rand @quotes]; return $quote; }
update: made the script much faster by having it output in jpeg format.

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.
