AccuWeather.pl Cacti Fix

I got bored today and decided that I wanted to monitor weather in different locations with my Cacti setup. I obtained a copy of the AccuWeather perl script and also the XML file for Cacti, loaded it up and what do you know… It wasn’t graphing the Temp or the RealFeel®. With a little help from my friend Wezzul I was able to get it graphing correctly. I present to you the fixed perl script.

#!/usr/bin/perl
use warnings;
use strict;

use LWP::Simple;

my $httpaddr = "http://wwwa.accuweather.com/forecast-current-conditions.asp?partner=forecastfox&myadc=0&traveler=1&zipcode=" . $ARGV[0] . "&metric=0";

my %data;
my $content = LWP::Simple::get($httpaddr) or die "Couldn't get it!";
$content =~ s/\ |\n//g;

# regex in html source order
