Dorward's Ramblings

The W3C Markup Validator at YAPC::EU::2005

Published on

This lightning talk was given in just under five minutes at YAPC::EU::2005 on Friday 2nd September 2005. It skimmed over everything very, very quickly (only natural as it was a lightning talk). I'm considering proposing a longer talk on the subject for YAPC next year.

Brief Overview

  1. The purpose of validation and why it is a good idea
  2. What validation of markup documents has to do with Perl
  3. Parsing the results of validation from Perl without screen-scraping
  4. A simple example script to demo this
