Thanks, happy to hear it!

In the meantime, perhaps you could update the script to emit
structured XML output
(http://nmap.org/book/nse-api.html#nse-structured-output). You'll find
that this actually simplifies the script, since you can just return a
key-value table instead of formatting strings and using

I've done this and cleaned it up in a bunch of other ways too. I wasn't
satisfied with how the table was rendered to unstructured output (and
that is the format i will use so i wrote a formatter that takes a table
suitable for structured output and produces something closer to the
result of stdnse.format_output. Please see make_formatter and
collate_results in my new version. If there's any interest in putting it
in a library i could extend it with the desirable remaining parts of
format_output and write some proper documentation.

Also, I'd prefer not to have the form-feed (0x0c) characters in the
comments: whitespace should be limited to 0x20 (space) and 0x0a (line
feed). I'm trying to collect these style suggestions here:

Sure, i just put them in so it would print better for a presentation,
they are gone.

Looking forward to trying this out and seeing your update!

Did you get a chance to try it yet?
