However, I am hoping to create a table with facts or (trivia) about the towns themselves (large and small) -- when they were founded, what they're known for (if anything).  Writing a perl program that uses regex to search the web is probably beyond my skills.  However, I am wondering if such a thing is possible and if so how hard or easy it is? I looked on CPAN but confess I really am not sure if I would recognise what I need if I saw it.  Any ideas on how or IF this can be done would be greatly appreciated.
