( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I know. Forgot my towel on 25th. This is an attempt to apologize :). A medium snippet (or a little program, if you prefear) to dig through the Galactic Guide.

Update: Another good Guide: http://www.vogon.com/guide/

Update: Following jepri's advice, topic can come from command-line.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use LWP::Simple; use HTML::Parser; my $in_article_body = 0; my $colin = HTML::Parser->new( start_h => [sub { my $self = shift; my ($tagname, $attr) = @_; if ($tagname eq "div" && $attr->{class} eq 'article') { $in_article_body = 1;; } }, "self, tagname, attr"], end_h => [sub { my $self = shift; my ($tagname) = @_; if ($tagname eq "div" && $in_article_body) { $in_article_body = 0; } }, "self, tagname"], text_h => [sub { my $self = shift; my ($origtext) = @_; print $origtext if $in_article_body; }, "self, text"]); my $topic = $ARGV[0] || 'perl'; my $url = "http://www.galactic-guide.com/cgi-bin/articlesearch.cgi?sea +rchval=$topic"; my $string = get( $url ); # It works like Google's "I'm feeling lucky"-mode if ($string =~ /1\. <a href="([^"]*)/ ) { my $new_url = "http://www.galactic-guide.com$1"; my $text = get( $new_url ); $colin->parse( $text ); } else { print "There aren't pages about $topic\n"; }

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.
