Me :

my $outline = "/path/to/io.otlml";

my $output  = IO::File->new("+<$outline");

my $writer  = XML::SAX::Writer->new(Output=>$output);

my $filter  = XML::Filter::OTLML::IO->new(Handler=>$writer);

my $parser  = XML::SAX::ParserFactory->parser(Handler=>$filter);


Still tracking down a bug where data at the end of the document sometimes (?!) gets printed twice. I might also "bless" the widget as a Handler -- this is the other part about SAX that I don't like: all these names! -- that writes to a file handle and to STDOUT so that it can be easily plugged into a pipeline. It will all have to wait until later, though since the "step away from the computer" police have arrived. I may release a tarball tomorrow, warts and all, and see what kind of feedback I get...


The random word of the day is : slazzy

Poorly attempting to dress nicely. Possible origin: Combination of snazzy (nicely dressed) and sleazy (poorly dressed).
ex. Christine looked very slazzy when she entered the fancy restaurant.
