[sf-perl] Testing a web crawler

Unfortunately (for you, fortunately for me) I didn't write the code that 
pulls the citation reference data out of the input files. So I can't speak 
to either of the modules you mention. The input we receive is in 
well-tagged XML, so the producer of the files separates the parts out for 
us anyway. :-)

All I had to do was the matching of data from reference to citation and 
v.v. within the database -- which is hard enough.

However, I thank you for the reference to the modules! I know some folks 
who'd love to have a more generic way to grab citation information from 
flat text...

Has anyone else attacked this problem?
