Ok, heres what I'm trying to do, I have thousands of htm, webpages in diffrent directories and I have to link to them on main pages...I'm trying to make a PERL script to steam line my work..
directory has 3000+ pages and I have to manually add links to
<<< one by one , under the correct state.
One each page in the venue section I have the state that that page/venue belongs in example : <!-- Texas --> on the first line of every page. so I need the script to take that data and make links on the http://www.ticketstogo.com/venues/states/
under the right state.
And for the concerts section I would like it to scan the http://www.ticketstogo.com/concerts/
directory and at the top of everypage on the first line I have the first letter of the artist name ..example : <!-- F --->, then take that and input a link to that page under the right letter on page : http://www.ticketstogo.com/concerts/
And there should be a Admin panel where I can add new directories/urls and pick, by state, by first letter. then the location of the links/main page , where the links will be added.
So what I need is a PERL program that can scan the directory and make links to the the pages on a main page, by seeing <!-- "STATE NAME--> or <!--- "LETTER"--> and inserting the link, one after another, on and on, untill its done, saving me hours in the progress...
example of a script that scans and see a <!-- bla bla bla --> and inserts a link..http://www.ccds.addr.com/wrc/links/addalink.htm
My script ended in ruins, I read half of my Perl : A Beginners Guide and I think I'm a perl god...I feel painfully crushed by my attempt..j/k
I know there are better scripting laguages out there, meaning having thousands of htm files, but right now i need this to work , untill our asp.net venture is rdy..which could be months, so please just help with this issues ..
