Does anyone have an example handy of how one could parse human-readable text out of an http stream? I know it’s got to be a simple solution, and I feel like I’m just missing something here. Or is this an example of having to learn way more about RegEx than I really want to?
In case my summary isn’t clear enough: I’m trying to, for example, feed vvvv the url of my livejournal and have it spit out just the entries, without visible html. I can parse html, but I don’t expect my audience to be able to do so ;>
max: renderer(html) doesn’t do what I want (I want to output just, say, text as strings and manipulate them), however the transmedia redef gives me a good place to start. I guess I need to work my way more carefully through girlpower. ;>
The HTTP nodes are in the new beta, as that’s what I’m using right now. (and it’s working great, except that it seems to not actually cleanly quit sometimes, but I need to research that more to see if it’s a bug or just my system)
david: I will definitely try that approach, I didn’t even think of Tidy. Thanks for the feedback.
