Depending on what form the data is in, there may already be a subclass
of HTML::Parser or another module for dealing with that data. For
example, if the data is in an HTML table, use HTML::TableExtract to get
at it directly or DBD::AnyData (which uses HTML::TableExtract under the
hood) to get at it with a DBI interface. There are similar modules for
parsing HTML forms, etc. I'm not trying to steer you away from
HTML::Parser , just pointing out that there may already be a higher
level module to get at the particular data you need.
