WWW::UsePerl::Journal

[ #12871 ]
The other day I had a bit of play with WWW::UsePerl::Journal. Unfortunately the box I was on didn't have a web browser (we were on a course so it was just a basic Linux box, sans gimmicks), so couldn't read use.perl directly. Thankfully it did have a network connection to the outside world. So CPAN.pm was my friend.

Installed WWW::UsePerl::Journal and had a play. discovered that the listing of ids/titles is slightly broken. On further investigation discovered the line:

foreach (sort keys %entries) {

which isn't very clever. A quick fix and a bit of added functionality I could list ascending or descending ids/titles at will :) However, it doesn't have comment stuff in there yet. So started adding that. Now have half a patch and half a new module. Planning to send them to the module author, when I get time, and see if he wants to add them to his distribution.

Mind you I should really finish my third talk for Birmingham.pm. Maybe later...

    Great, yeah, send me the patch.

    I don't use the module now, so I haven't been doing anything to it. I plan to use the SOAP interface instead of the horrible kludgy scraping that's going on now, but I don't think you can access the comments that way...

    I ought to write a wee script to output RSS, then I might start using the module again...
    • It'll probably be next week now, as I have talks to write and present this week.

      A handy module to know though, it kept me amused for a couple days during my qmail course :)
