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

I currently have the following code which captures the number of followers for a particular Twitter account, and prints it to a webpage:

<html> <head> <script src="// +in.js"></script> <script type="text/javascript"> $(document).ready(function() { var twitterusername = 'ESPN'; $.getJSON('' + twitterusername + '.json?c +allback=?', function(data) { $('#followers').html(data.followers_count); document.write(twitterusername, "# of Followers: ", data.follo +wers_count); }); }); </script> </head> <body> <div id='followers'></div> </body> </html>

How can I take the number of followers, and store it into a Perl variable?

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.
