CloudFlare suffered a massive security issue affecting all of its customers, including Rosetta Code. All passwords not changed since February 19th 2017 have been expired, and session cookie longevity will be reduced until late March.--Michael Mol (talk) 05:15, 25 February 2017 (UTC)

Rosetta Code/Find bare lang tags

From Rosetta Code
Rosetta Code/Find bare lang tags
You are encouraged to solve this task according to the task description, using any language you may know.

Find all   <lang>   tags without a language specified in the text of a page.

Display counts by language section:



<lang C>printf("Hello world!\n");</lang>

<lang>print "Hello world!\n"</lang>

should display something like

2 bare language tags.

1 in perl
1 in no language

Extra credit

Allow multiple files to be read.   Summarize all results by language:

5 bare language tags.

2 in c ([[Foo]], [[Bar]])
1 in perl ([[Foo]])
2 in no language ([[Baz]])

Extra extra credit

Use the   Media Wiki API   to test actual RC tasks.


This code has no syntax highlighting, because Rosetta Code's highlighter fails with code that contains literal </lang> tags.

There are actually many different Regex packages available for Haskell. For this example, I chose TDFA, a very fast POSIX ERE engine. To change engines, simply change the import statement. If you use a Perl-style RE engine, you'll have to modify the expressions slightly.

This solution can be compiled into a program that will either take space-delimited list of files as its argument, or take input from STDIN if no arguments are provided. Additionally, if you specify the -w flag in the first argument, it will take a list of Rosetta Code wiki pages and search them. Note that the page names must be as they appear in your URL bar -- underscores in place of spaces.

Here are the input files I used to test:


<lang C>printf("Hello world!\n");</lang>

<lang>print "Hello world!\n"</lang>


<lang>printf("Hello world!\n");</lang>

<lang>print "Hello world!\n"</lang>
<lang Perl>print "Goodbye world!\n"</lang>

<lang>hubris lang = "I'm so much better than a "++lang++" programmer because I program in Haskell."</lang>

And the output:

6 bare language tags:

2 in no language ([[]], [[]])
1 in C ([[]])
1 in Haskell ([[]])
2 in Perl ([[]], [[]])

Additionally, I tested with 100_doors and Huffman_coding. The following resulted:

5 bare language tags:

1 in no language ([[100_doors]])
1 in C ([[Huffman_coding]])
1 in CoffeeScript ([[Huffman_coding]])
1 in Perl ([[Huffman_coding]])
1 in PostScript ([[100_doors]])

Icon and Unicon[edit]

The following is a Unicon-specific solution.

import Utils		# To get the FindFirst class
procedure main()
keys := ["{{header|","<lang>"]
lang := "No language"
tags := table(0)
total := 0
ff := FindFirst(keys)
f := reads(&input, -1)
f ? while tab(ff.locate()) do {
if "{{header|" == 1(ff.getMatch(), ff.moveMatch()) then lang := map(tab(upto("}}")))
else (tags[lang] +:= 1, total +:= 1)
write(total," bare language tags:\n")
every pair := !sort(tags) do write(pair[2]," in ",pair[1])

This script looks for all of the pages in Category:Programming Tasks, downloads them, and gets the bare tags per language. Then, it gets the total of all of them, prints it, and sums up the bare tags by language. Note that it doesn't check if the tags are in a block or even closed, so it picks up false positives (especially on this page.)

This is a simple implementation that does not attempt either extra credit.

Perl 6[edit]

Translation of: Perl

The only tricky thing here is the use of the ms form of match, short for m:sigspace. This causes whitespace in the regex to be considered "significant", that is, it matches optional whitespace at those positions, as if you'd put \s* there. Of course, the regexes themselves are in Perl 6 syntax, which is quite different from Perl 5 regex syntax (and arguably much cleaner). Regex syntax is perhaps the area in which Perl 6 diverges most from Perl 5.

my $lang = '(no language)';
my $total = 0;
my %blanks;
for lines() {
when / '<lang>' / {
when ms/ '==' '{{' 'header' '|' ( \S+? ) '}}' '==' / {
$lang = $;
say "$total bare language tag{ 's' if $total != 1 }\n";
say .value, ' in ', .key for %blanks.sort;
2 bare language tags

1 in (no language)
1 in perl


Note that this follows the task, but the output is completely bogus since the actual <lang> tags that it finds are in <pre> and in code...
