it cannot be accessed by programs if it is marked as 'not public', even if you provide your login and want to access your scratchpad.
it is possible to access your own scratchpad parsing user info, but the canonical solution remains broken.

I don't understand this. Perhaps you need to define "the canonical solution" for me because I can't find any solution that cares whether your own scratchpad is public or not (if you provide your login information or cookie).

I just used a program to access my scratchpad that I had marked as "not public". I did not use "edit user information". I simply pulled down the scratchpad page. It was as easy as:

perl -S GET ";user=tye;di +splaytype=raw;op=login;passwd=yeah,right"
where "displaytype=raw" is optional, you can replace "node=..." with "node_id=108949", and you can replace "op=login;passwd=..." with a cookie.

Perhaps you are hoping for "displaytype=xml" to work. It doesn't, even if your scratchpad is public. The solution for that is to split scratchpads out of the 'user' table (which solves several other problems and even reduces DB load).

What am I missing?

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.
