JAPH. (That's right -- I'm not Really Inexperienced any more.)

I'm not just here, I'm here [], and here [] too, I ramble randomly in my philosophical blog [] and my other blog []. Soon I'll come in a convenient six-pack.

Baby Steps

[ #4845 ]
Clicking on the title of the journal entry now produces the body of the entry in the text window to the left.

Next up tomorrow: Figure out why Text::Wrap isn't working, come up with a solution for wrapping said text, and strip out the most common HTML elements to promote readability.

Quick Addendum: Text::Wrap doesn't work because...I don't know why, but it doesn't have to. I'm a fool, so I missed that there's a wrap attribute for the text widget. Someday I'll learn to think in terms of objects when I'm doing objects...

  • For my useperl journal emailer (available from the perl part of my website), I cheated. I actually pipe the HTML to lynx and tell that to just dump it to stdout. Simple, fast enough and no faffing around with any modules that don't want to behave =)

    And it handles all the HTML =)
