in reply to Stripping HTML tags with Regular Expressions.

A few comments:

  1. Regexes and HTML don't like each other
  2. CPAN is our valued friend. Make it your friend too, will save you lots of time.
  3. eg, see HTML::Parser
  4. see also 7 Stages of Regex Users
  5. Please don't use this: s/<[^>]*>//g as it is a very bad idea. See previous point.
