( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
You might find the quotemeta function quite useful - it's exactly for this purposes.

Update: Alright - I shot before finish reading :/
About converting special characters: The CGI module gives you the function you need to do that.
About the date-check: m/\d{4}-\d{2}-\d{2}/ should do the trick - read perlre for why.

And finally, about mailing you: Sorry, I don't do that stuff. If one is searching for help in a special place s/he should also check back there for the answers - that's the way a community works, by sharing the thoughts. Especially on topics like this. It is easy that I might have missed the one or the other thing (like simply stated by this update ;) - others might add to it. That's not possible if I would have mailed you.... Think of it.

Title:
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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
