These patches fix the Perl/Tk chatterbox client (or so it would seem).

Please test and let me know if there are any problems.

  • Fixed Getopt::Long exception when monkchat is run with the '--debug' or '-d' option:
    Unknown option: s -d Bad options! at ./ line 106.
    Call to open2() passed command line arguments as list, appending the '-s' and optional '-d' switches as a single string ("-s -d"). When open2() is called with a list of command line args, the shell's word splitting doesn't take place, so "-s -d" is parsed as option switch '-s' with value '-d'.
  • Fixed XML parsing patterns in both and monkchat to accomodate recent changes to the chatterbox XML ticker output.
  • Made a few changes to style to make some of the code easier to read. This is probably an evil thing to do, my apologies.
  • Localized $_ in a few places where it looked like it needed to be done.
  • Fixed pet peeve: "Noone" is not a word. :)


NOTE: link removed until I can find time to grab the patches and put them on a different server.

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.
