G'day hexcoder,

Perhaps, instead of a table of just templates, you could use a table of coderefs whose functionality includes preprocessing, unpacking, formatting, and anything else you need.

Here's a highly contrived and primitive example just to show the technique.

#!/usr/bin/env perl -l use strict; use warnings; my %decode_type = ( A => sub { "Do TypeA stuff with '$_[0]'" }, B => sub { "Do TypeB stuff with '$_[0]'" }, ); while (<DATA>) { chomp; my ($type, $msg) = split /\s+/, $_, 2; my $decoded = $decode_type{$type}->($msg); print $decoded; } __DATA__ B message B1 A more complex message A1 B message B2


Do TypeB stuff with 'message B1' Do TypeA stuff with 'more complex message A1' Do TypeB stuff with 'message B2'

I don't know how useful that might be; however, your general description suggested this approach.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
