( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Displays the Department of Homeland Security threat level, in color. This was just a little CGI I wrote to make a point. Note that I do not advocate parsing XML with regular expressions, except in trivial cases like this.

#! /usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use LWP::UserAgent; my $level = 'Unknown'; my %colors = ( 'Unknown' => '#808080', 'Low' => '#63cf63', 'Guarded' => '#009aff', 'Elevated' => '#ffcf00', 'High' => '#ff6500', 'Severe' => '#ff0000', ); my $userAgent = new LWP::UserAgent; my $request = new HTTP::Request GET => ' +etAdvisoryCondition'; my $response = $userAgent->request ($request); $level = ucfirst lc $1 if $response->is_success && $response->content =~ /CONDITION="([^"]*)"/; print qq{Content-type: text/html <html> <body style="background-color:$colors{$level}"> <h3 style="color:#000000">$level</h3> </body> </html> }; exit 0;

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.
