[Pdx-pm] HTML::Parser help

Greetings all.

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?

muchas gracias,
Tom K.
