Me : WWW::Pseudodictionary.pm 0.1

The girl with a not so hidden agenda wondered aloud this morning :
[W]ho in the hell does the word of the day??? agitprop??? gah!
And while I confess to not being entirely sure what she's talking about it did remind me that I had written a whole whack of code for munging the data files at pseudodictionary.com. Since then, however, they've rejigged their back-end but with a little help from the mighty mighty HTML::Parser I was able to whip up a package that exports a single class method named random which returns a hash reference :







asc @ localhost in /home/asc/bin/perl/pseudodict



144 ->./parse-random



$VAR1 = {



          'example' => 'ex. My new job allows me to clock dollars.',



          'permalink' => 'http://pseudodictionary.com/word.php?id=5911',



          'submitter' => 'Jerome Greco',



          'id' => '5911',



          'www' => 'http://jgreco.homestead.com/jeromespage.html',



          'word' => 'clock dollars'



        };







I fear that if 2001 was the year of writing code, 2002 is going to be the year of the pedant...
