[REBOL] perl and dialects

From: jseq:mediaone at: 25-Oct-2001 10:37

I just ran across this link on the site. SIMONW/Inline-Webchat-0.5.readme It's a dialect for writing web automation scripts in Perl. Gisle Aas' Expect like webchat language is a simple way of perfomring common web based tasks such as getting a page, checking for links, submitting data to a form and so on. This allows you to mix and match Perl with webchat i.e use Inline::WebChat; use Data::Dumper; print Dumper get_hits ('test query'); exit 0; __WebChat__ sub get_hits { GET EXPECT OK F q=$_[0] CLICK EXPECT OK return @links } Although you have the usual horrid perl syntax surrounding it, the dialecting part looks very slick and REBOL-esque. Now if we could only get Inline::REBOL ;-) JS
