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

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

Well, most of WWW::Chain is in place. Check for matching URL? Got it. Validate incoming start and target URLs? Got it. Stop after a reasonable search depth? Got it.

Now I just need to decide what to parse HTML with. I'm running out of time, so I'll probably look at it tomorrow or later tonight and see what seems simple enough for me to work with...or powerful enough to seem worth learning now for future benefit. Either will do. :)

  • Are you reinventing WWW::Robot [cpan.org], perhaps?

    • Randal L. Schwartz
    • Stonehenge
    • It's supposed to try to find a set of links that make a path from a start page to a target page.

      Not quite reinventing WWW::Robot(unless I misunderstood the docs), but I'd be willing to bet there's quite a bit of overlapping functionality. Now that I think of it, in fact, I seem to remember a random-link traverser that someone posted on Perlmonks. I'll have to go looking, because that solves most of my problem right there...
