|Format of snippet in Google API output?|
| 5:14 pm on Sep 9, 2003 (gmt 0)|
When I run a simple program (perl) to search for
google I get the following in the title and snippet fields:
<b>...</b> Advertise with Us - Business Solutions - Services &amp; Tools - Jobs,<br> Press, &amp; Help Ac2003 <b>Google</b> - Searching 3,307,998,701 web pages.
The snippet is all on one line with no line breaks.
Now I have no problem adding a function that will change the various
> etc to
> etc., but is this the expected output format?
The APIs_Reference.html file says nothing about having to convert entities to "normal" characters, and more to the point none of the examples in Google Hacks shows such a conversion.
I am running WinXP with a Cygwin environment, using the perl that comes with it:
This is perl, v5.8.0 built for cygwin-multi-64int. I installed SOAP::Lite and its many prerequisites using
perl -MCPAN -e 'install SOAP::Lite' which did not complain.
The obvious place to ask is the google.public.web-apis newsgroup, but it seems to be a "questions without answers" newsgroup :(
Any help would be much apprciated.
