Kirby, I think what you're looking for is iCal::Parser::HTML

> What I have: A frequently-updated database of events (scheduled tests for
> the UW Testing Center).  Output of this in iCal Format (hand-spun, but that
> wasn't very hard thanks to finding the right perl modules.)  A
> Catalyst-based web platform.
> What I want: An easy way to display this on a webpage without having to
> rewrite the wheel of Calendaring software.
> I've tried publishing it to a google calendar and embedding that in an
> iframe, and it works just fine - except that Google wants to update rarely
> (maybe daily?) and there's no way to force it.  I can live with a little bit
> of lag, but it's just not useful as a daily publish.
> Alternately, a perl module that draws a calendar based on an iCal
> subscription URL would be wonderful, but well beyond the time I want to
> spend on this to create.
> Anyone solved this problem already?  There's a lot of stuff in the online
> calendar space, most of it total garbage - I'm drowning in too many paths,
> really.
> Thanks for any advice,
