I assume you already know about my PerlMonks modules, so I will skip the obvious plug (which I just did, anyway :-)

What actually surprised me is that I was convinced that I had used XML::Simple for parsing the chatbox XML (I wrote it a long time ago), but I just looked and I also did manual parsing. The chatbox XML is so simple that I didn't feel the need for it. I may have to update that some time. I did use XML::Simple for the NewestNodes module, though, since the output is much more complex. And XML::Simple is very easy to use. Interestingly, I don't remember the XML modules being problematic to install.

Another thing that surprised me is how similar the code is. Comparing your do_update() with my PerlMonks::Chat::getallines() shows a very similar logical structure, even though the code itself is different. Amazing!

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.
