I'm sure I'm missing something very easy, but any help would be appreciated
in this matter.
I'm trying to document the html files of my site with meta tags
(name="keywords",name="description"). Unfortunately I don't seem to be able
to pull out the content portion of the meta tag.
$file = <<EOF;
<meta name="keywords" content="Just, A, Comma, Seperated, List">
<meta name="description" content="Just a plain old description">
...lots of html here...
Now, if I run the following pattern match:
$file =~ m/<meta\s+name\s*=\s*"description"\s+content\s*=\s*"(.*)?"\s*>/sig;
It matches everything up to the last double quote in the file content, as
though I had left out the non-greedy quantifier.
However, $file =~ m/<title>\s*(.*)?\s*<\/title>/sig; properly matches just
Like I said, I'm sure I'm missing something easy, but I'm definately missing
it completely. Any ideas?
