( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Based on advise from Michel Rodriguez, author of XML::Twig, I am trying to employ ->findnodes() to parse from an html file a the content of each li tag. This is what I've got so far:

sub parse_mm_archive_cycle { my $self = shift; my $base_url = shift; my $cycle = shift; $cycle =~ s/:$//; my $url = "$base_url/$cycle/date.html"; print STDERR $url, "\n"; $self->{'agent'}->get( $url ); my $html = $self->{'agent'}->content(); $self->{'twig'}->parseurl($url,$self->{'agent'}); print STDERR 'Our twig objects is: ' . Dumper($self->{'twig'}); # $self->{'twig'}->parseurl($url); # my $root = $self->{'twig'}->root; for my $story ($self->{'twig'}->findnodes("li")){ print STDERR 'Next story: ' . Dumper($story); } return; # $html; }
But this keeps throwing an error on the ->parseurl line, reading:

syntax error at line 1, column 48, byte 48 at /usr/lib/perl5/XML/Parse line 187 at lib/CF/ line 113
Can anyone who has used this before please offer some advise?

if( $lal && $lol ) { $life++; }
if( $insurance->rationing() ) { $people->die(); }

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.
