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

My wife had some large digital books she downloaded as CHM files and wanted to read in a less cumbersome format. I used extract_chmlib to generate a directory of all the HTML files and images, but the table of contents information was in a bastard-step-child of an html file with a *.hhc" extension. This was a quick and dirty strict that massaged it into an index.html file she could open in her browser

I have no idea if all CHM files contain the same kinds of table of contents files, but if they do, this might be usefull...

#!/usr/bin/perl while (my $line = <>) { $line =~ s{<OBJECT type="text/site[^"]*">}{}g; $line =~ s{</OBJECT>}{}g; $line =~ s{<param name="ImageNumber" value="\d*">}{}g; $line =~ s{<param name="Name" value="([^"]*)">}{$1}g; $line =~ s{<param name="Local" value="">}{...}g; $line =~ s{<param name="Local" value="([^"]*)">}{ <a href="$1">##< +/a>}g; $line =~ s{<param name="[^"]*" value="[^"]*">}{}g; print $line; }

Edit: Fixed the horrendously confusing spelling mistake in the 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.
