Chatter box like parser

by rodry (Beadle)
on Nov 29, 2000 at 12:30 UTC ( #43867=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

rodry has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello. I am trying to write a simple parser like the one used in the chatter box. You know, when you type in those special tags to reference a node or to reference a user.

I am having all kinds of trouble trying to write such an application. So, if the monks that run this site would be kind enough to post the regular expressions used to parse those custom chatterbox codes, I would appreciate it :) Thanks in advance.

      The square-bracketish things used in the Everything code are not HTML-ish parsable though.

      It's probably best to go grab the Everything tarball and just steal the technology from there. Isn't that what open source is about? {grin}
