The code listing is missing the first few lines (they appear correctly in the step-by-step breakdown starting on p333). The missing first few lines are these: use strict; use Jabber::Connection; use Jabber::NodeFactory; use Jabber::NS qw(:all); use MLDBM 'DB_File'; use LWP::Simple; use XML::RSS;

The second sentence "One of the functions..." would really benefit from a rewrite, especially as it's potentially a bit confusing and difficult to follow the flow with all the examples, figures and sidebars in this area. May I humbly suggest the sentence starting "One of the functions.." be replaced with this: "What information is returned depends on what information is stored in the JUD in the first place. You can find out what fields are available for population by sending an IQ-get in the 9780596002022:iq:register namespace, as shown in Example 10-3."
