Probably reinventing the wheel, but...

(NB: You may need to cpan install DBD::SQLite first.)

use DBD::SQLite; use strict; use warnings; =pod This program reads a file named places.sqlite which is found somewhere under your folder named Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles You pass the pathname of this file as a command-line argument. This program outputs html. =cut my $dbfile = shift; $dbfile or die "Usage: $0 <path>/places.sqlite \n"; -r $dbfile or die "Unreadable $dbfile\n"; $dbfile =~ /\bplaces\.sqlite$/ or die "File should be places.sqlite\n" +; my $dbh = DBI->connect("dbi:SQLite:dbname=$dbfile","","") or die "Erro +r opening db $dbfile\n"; my $bookmarks = $dbh->selectall_hashref("select * from moz_bookmarks", +'id'); my $places = $dbh->selectall_hashref("select * from moz_places",'id +'); # construct the tree: my $root; for my $b ( values %$bookmarks ) { if ( $b->{parent} ) { my $p = $bookmarks->{ $b->{parent} }; push @{ $p->{children} }, $b; } else # yep, there's exactly one. { $root = $b; } } # produce the html: local($,,$\)=("\t","\n"); sub walk; sub walk { my $depth = shift; my $n = shift; my $indent = "\t" x $depth; if ( $n->{type} == 2 ) # folder { print $indent . ($depth?"<li>":'') . "<h4>$n->{title}</h4>"; if ( $n->{children} ) { print $indent . "<ol>"; for my $c ( sort { $a->{position} <=> $b->{position} } @{ +$n->{children} } ) { walk($depth+1,$c); } print $indent . "</ol>"; } $depth and print $indent . "</li>"; } else # leaf bookmark { my $link = $n->{title}; if ( $n->{fk} and $places->{$n->{fk}} and $places->{$n->{fk}}{ +url} ) { my $url = $places->{$n->{fk}}{url}; $link =~ /\S/ or $link = $url; $link = qq(<a href="$url">$link</a>); } else { $link =~ /\S/ or $link = "$n->{type}:$n->{id}"; } print $indent . "<li>$link</li>"; } } walk(0,$root);
