added yet more content to the perl
section. of course it's all basic stuff, but that's
what i'm good at right now. :)
anyway, added a section on file i/o. should be helpful for those of us that forget which means append, and which means write over the file. :)
don't ever spend more time on the computer than your woman, no matter how much that code means to you, your woman will mean more, especially when all you have left is your code (and in my case I'll have plenty of time to improve it)
life and love, work and death, food and air, fire and breath,--binaryfoo out
take you here, take you there, hold your mind, hold your cares.
these won't bite, these won't sting, these are ideas, these won't cling,
toil toil, boil and bubble, how much is it worth to you? these times of trouble?
hope all is going well with everyone
meditating on perl,
why am I writing this out?
back to work!
Slow sunday. Getting ready to attend a two-week long course in CRM. Should prove interesting. I'll be writing perl in my spare time, and researching Load Testing for Akamai. Anyone ever load-tested an Akamaized site before? And if your site is Akamaized, are you sure it can withstand 30 million pageviews in a single day? Well I'm about to find out if our's can. Not sure exactly where to start, but I figure Keynote's a good place to start.
As for web play, I remembered how to load a link with form
info. The site I was helping out used predominantly the
POST method and I was trying to figure out how to get a
link to also call up the same page and supply the same info
as the rest of the page was with an input image. I wrapped
the link with a new form tag, this time using the GET
method. And as for the link URL, I used the info gleaned
from using a test send from the POST method, and simply cut
and pasted the long URL into the link. This was only the
first step as the target page needed a conditional
statement for each piece of info that was being presented
on the page. There I basically said if the Query string
wasn't empty, use the querystring, otherwise use the posted
form method. And it seems to work.
You can see this in action by viewing InDepthArts Check out the
gallery section. I guess they put the favorite images in
the Hall of Fame section. But there's good images in the
open gallery as well.
New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
