Perl scripts to pull in weather informationgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Great Destinations : One Thread
Mike & Lauri asked how we pull in weather information to put on the destination pages. Perl Guru Dorian would be the main one to ask, I guess, though CPAN has a number of free perl scripts meant to do exactly this, and they pull from NOAA rather than a private source like weather.com. Ideally these scripts would be cron jobs and would update a cache for each of the destinations (maybe a server-side include would put them on static pages).
