Hello monks,

Well, it's been a while since I've been active here; I have been helping other with coding, on such places as OpenNAP, and of course, IRC. -- When others paste code, it's always a good idea to parse the code, and exclude their nick, or other appended information; So I wrote an all purpose chat client paste parser.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w # Chat client paste parser # Author: dusk use strict; die "Usage: $0 [input file] [output file] [nick] [0:1]\n" unless $ARGV +[3]; warn "Remember: 0 and 1 denote timestamped, or not -- respectively\n"; my $nick = $ARGV[2]; open (INPUT, "$ARGV[0]"); foreach (<INPUT>) { open (OUTPUT, ">>$ARGV[1]"); if ($ARGV[3] == 0) { print OUTPUT "$1\n" if /^\W$nick\W\s(.*)/ } else { print OUTPUT "$1\n" if /^\W\d.*\W\s\W$nick\W\s(.*)/ } } close OUTPUT; close INPUT;

Edit ar0n -- fixed whitespace

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.
