Not a bad idea ... but why not just write a Perl script that downloads your home node, parses out your current experience and sends you a /msg. How about one that keeps track of new additions to Saints in our Book and /msg's them with a congradulation. Remember, this is Perl Monks - we can make our own bells and whistles for the site. ;)

Here is some code to get you going ... check out Personal Nodelet Extractor for some example code to log you in and post a message ... oh, and you might want to utilize an HTML Parser instead of using that fragile regex.

use strict; use warnings; use LWP::Simple; my $node = shift or die 'gimme a node #'; my $html = get("$node"); my ($exp) = $html =~ m{<td>Experience:</td>\s+<td><b>(\d+)}; my %level = ( initiate => 0, novice => 20, acolyte => 50, scribe => 100, monk => 200, friar => 500, abbot => 1000, bishop => 1600, pontiff => 2300, saint => 3000, ); print "You made Monk!!!\n" if $exp >= $level{monk};


(the triplet paradiddle with high-hat)

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.
