Anonymous Monk has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I've got a bit of a problem. I'm designing something that pulls a webpage off the internet, searches through the source and grabs the data I want. The only problem I'm having is I don't know what I'm doing. What the goal is for this project is to be able to search through a single string that holds my webpage source, use patterns to look through the source, and for each instance of data I find I would like to put that data into an array, making sure I increment a counter along the way to keep track of the data amount. I don't need to deal with sorting the data or numbering it. All I want is to be able to search this one string and copy data from it and place it in an array. I just have no clue what I'm doing.
