1 New Member
I found a nice ASP RSS Parser script. But the only thing is that is parses all the articles in the feed. i only need to parse the top three in the rss feed. and limit the description to 170 characters... Can someone please help me out with this? I am real new to asp and would apreciate any help!

Thanks Ben.

notice the lines that say:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Dim objItem
  2. For Each objItem in objItems
This is what says to go through each line. If you only want three, then change it to something like this:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Dim objItem, x
  2. x = 0
  3. For Each objItem in objItems
  4.    x = x + 1
  5.    if x > 3 then exit for 
Does this make sense? I just added a counter called "x" and it exits after three times through the for... next loop. This probably isn't the best way to exit the loop (it is generally considered a bad idea to exit loops this way unless you are troubleshooting an error) but this is a simple way to exit from a loop that someone else wrote and you don't have to worry about whether the loop will advance the right way if you change it. Anyway, let me know if this helps.

Hello, I am trying to pinpoint an apparent bug in HTML::Parser. The encoding of the text seems to change incorrectly if the locale isn't set properly. However Parser.pm in the directory (/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/HTML/) doesn't seem to contain the "real" parsing statements.

This applies to a URL, image file names and any additional attribute values (alt, style, etc.). This issue is...

In Linq, you can apparently get a meaningful body from and expression's .ToString(); random question - does anybody know if linq also includes a parser? It just seemed it might be a handy way to write a safe but easy implementation (i.e. no codedom) for an IBindingListView.Filter (by compiling to a Predicate<T>). Anybody know if this is possible at all? Marc

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
