in reply to HTML::TableExtractor and embedded columns

how about Using table tag attributes.

use Data::Dumper; use HTML::TableExtract; use Text::Table; my $content = './table.html'; my $headers = ['subhead1', 'subhead2']; #my $te = HTML::TableExtract->new(headers => $headers); my $tbl_extr = HTML::TableExtract->new(attribs => { border => 1 }); my $tbl_out = Text::Table->new(@$headers); $tbl_extr->parse_file($content); foreach my $ts ($tbl_extr->tables) { print "Table with border=1 found at ", join(',', $ts->coords), + ":\n"; foreach my $row ($ts->rows) { print " ", join(',', @$row), "\n"; } }

All is well

    I'll check that out, thanks. But using attribs doesn't solve the problem. Well, it may solve it in this particular case, but what if no attributes are specified in table tags? That's what I'm thinking about.
