parsing tags

I have some custom tags I'm parsing, they look like this:

<edit name="some_valu e" name2="some_val ue" name3="value with spaces">

I had just been splitting on whitespace, until I though of the value
with whitespace already in it:

'/\s+/'

Is there a lightweight easy way to do this in PHP? In perl this is
neither easy and lightweight.

How about removing the tag title and the trailing and splitting on
'/" /'?

Genius. I like that a lot.

I think I'll split on '/"\s+/'

What happens if this should occur?:

$key = '';
$key2 = ' A';

$ARRAY[$key] = 'some_val';
$ARRAY[$key2] = 'some_val';

From my code with $key2 it looks like the leading space is ignored as I
can retrieve this with: $ARRAY['A']. I'll run some more tests shortly as
I may be confused as that doesn't seem right.

I am trying to parse an HTML page an only modify URLs within tags - e.g. inside IMG, A, SCRIPT, FRAME tags etc... I have built one that works fine using the HTMLParser.HTMLParser and it works fine.... on good HTML. Having done a google it looks like parsing dodgy HTML and having HTMLParser choke is a common theme. I would have difficulties using regular expressions as I want to modify local reference URLS as well as absolute ones.

I have the following XML string that I want to parse using the SAX parser. If I remove the portion of the XML string between the <audit> and </audit> tags the SAX is parsing correctly.

I would like to parse a couple of tables within an individual player's SHTML page. For example, I would like to get the "Actual Pitching Statistics" and the "Translated Pitching Statistics" portions of Babe Ruth page (http://www.baseballprospectus.com/dt/ruthba01.shtml) and store that info in a CSV file. Also, I would like to do this for numerous players whose IDs I have stored in a text file (e.g.: cobbty01, ruthba01, speaktr01, etc.)....

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

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,...
