The HTML::parser module provides methods for, literally, parsing HTML.
It can handle HTML text from a string or file and can separate out the
syntactic structures and data. You shouldn't use HTML::Parser directly,
however, since its interface hasn't been designed to make your life
easy when you parse HTML. It's merely a base class from which you can
build your own parser to deal with HTML in any way you want.
I've been away from Perl for a couple of months (grant due). But now
I'm back to tasks that are way more fun.
I find I have to parse an html file to extract some data. I installed
HTML::Parser today, but I'm having trouble understanding how to write
the subs that get me what I want. Does anyone know of a good tutorial,
or some well commented examples?
