( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

For the benefit of BitchX users, I've placed a fragment of BitchX code to reformat RoboMonk CB msgs differently from regular users' messages at:

http://dalnet-perl.org/converter/robomonk-bx-on.txt

The output looks similar to this:

[02:19] [ CB ] converter: what am i doing awake at this hour?

update: Wouldn't it be nice if BitchX were, you know, documented?

At any rate, the 'on' snaglet I posted has a slight annoyance factor: it interprets %<character or digit> as a display attribute sequence (the heads of hash definitions in msgs are eaten up and cause the fg and/or bg color to be changed). I've been toying with a solution, but the documentation is useless. I'll include a fix as soon as I figure it out. In the meantime, if you know more about bx scripting than I do and know how to fix the problem, please share.

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.
