in reply to Perl/Tk Newest Nodes Client

I borrowed the %nodetypes hash from this script for a CGI client and found that it didn't contain all types, some must have been added since it was written. The original contains 14, this 19:

my %nodetypes = ( 'bookreview' => 'Book Reviews', 'categorized answer' => 'Categorized Answers', 'categorized question' => 'Categorized Questions', 'CUFP' => 'Cool Uses for Perl', 'modulereview' => 'Reviews', 'monkdiscuss' => 'Perlmonks Discussion', 'note' => 'Reply', 'obfuscated' => 'Obfuscated Perl', 'perlcraft' => 'Perl Craft', 'perlmeditation' => 'Meditations', 'perlnews' => 'Perl News', 'perltutorial' => 'Tutorials', 'perlquestion' => 'Seekers of Perl Wisdom', 'poem' => 'Poems', 'review' => 'Reviews', 'snippet' => 'Code Snippets', 'sourcecode' => 'Code Catacombs', 'tutorial' => 'Tutorials', 'user' => 'Users', );

    I believe you have tutorial listed twice...

    ... Quidquid perl dictum sit, altum viditur.
      I looked around Tutorials and found two different nodetypes, 'perltutorial' and 'document' (but have never seen 'document' in newest nodes). Checking the nodetypes is labor intensive (get id from title, then lookup with node_id=37150&nodes=860,62782) so most were not.

      This list only reflects what was seen in newest nodes for a number of weeks. I understand there are many more nodetypes, most of which don't show up on newest nodes, but some that might. I can't say if 'tutorial' is a valid nodetype, but since its on the list and doesn't cause a problem am inclined to leave it (having also received some official verification of this list).

      Your vigilance is appreciated 8^}
