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

You could patch the ticker to return the data in its flat record, parent pointer form instead of as a recursive data structure. Building the tree from the flat structure is a lot easier than reading the nested XML.

And now ive patched the ticker to do just this. And return some additional information. Try using 'flattree=1' to get the new output. Also, the ticker now responds to xmlstyle settings and has the customary info tag with data about the ticker and stuff like that.

You can build a fully connected tree structure from the "flattree" output quite easily. The algorithm is as follows:

my $res = $o->pm_get( node_id => 180684, id => 505536, flattree => 1 ) +; my $data = XMLin( $res->content, ForceArray => 0 ); my %nodes; foreach my $node ( @{ $data->{node} } ) { my $nid = $node->{node_id}; # register this node so children can find it $nodes{ $nid } = $node; if ( my $pid = $node->{parent_node} ) { # tell the parent about this child $nodes{$pid}{kids}{$nid} = $node; # make the reference to the parent "hard" and not "soft" $node->{parent} = $nodes{$pid}; } }

You are guaranteed that this will work. You dont need to worry about the parent not existing, or anything like that.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
