Grokbase Groups Perl ai May 2001
I looked into XML to WML XSLT transitions for a client six months ago, and I
too came to the conclusion that the deck of cards is downloaded, that the
card itself is a means of display, and not of saving memeory. This led to
thoughts of testing on a hundred 'phones, sniffing 'phone memory, using a
ISP gateway, writing a gateway, and then writing cards as seperate docs,
split at headings/paragraphs.

So, _pete - does this effect things, if your primary motivation for
splitting over cards is memery-related?

And, er, why are we on Perl AI?!

My understanding is that WML wants you to put all sorts of interrelated
data together into one "deck" as cards, and you browse between the
interrelated cards primarily, which means you have everything downloaded
first and you don't have to worry about downloading more each time you
do something. And seeing the speed and processing power of these things,
this is a good idea. If you're familiar with older Macs, think Hypercard.

Hi hi.

I'm writing an HTML->WML convertor...

Anyway, the hard bit is done, which brings me on to the
hardest part -
obviously WAP devices have quite a small memory, and data tends
to be split
into 'cards'. What I want to know, is do any algorithms or
similar exist for
splitting a piece of somewhat formatted text into smaller chunks?
