Presentation on XMLTV

Slides for a talk I gave to some members of the Department of Computing, Imperial College London on 2002-03-14.

  • The problem
  • Lots and lots of programmes
  • Use XML
  • Grabbing human-readable listings
  • First release
  • Use Perl
  • History of the XMLTV project
  • Parsing XML documents
  • Problems with listings data
  • Munging English text
  • Filter programs
  • The future
  • Also see the silly poster to promote the talk. (PDF format, but might save with a silly filename.)
