Perl Script: datadirect-parse.pl

Post by drorb » Thu Jul 15, 2010 8:10 am

I've been using this script, that I found on this site, for several years. It ran perfectly Saturday, 7/10/10, but failed today 7/15/10 complaining the startTime and endTime 'appear to be null.'

I'm not a Perl guru, but I added some printing to the script and can't see what's wrong.

Did something change? Is there a newer way to create XTVD?

Thanks!

I had the same problem. I followed rmeden's news update to the tribune servers.... see "BAD START TIME"
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=931

to the link for the latest sample code on this post (tmsfetch.pl version).
viewtopic.php?f=8&t=568

I had to change my line that previously looked like this:

Code: Select all

-> download("<startTime>$start</startTime><endTime>$end</endTime>");
to this

Code: Select all

-> download($start,$end);
and then my full regular fetch worked.
