in reply to Strip HTML tags again

This problem looks tailor-made for my HTML::TokeParser::Simple module, when combined with HTML::Tagset. The following test will demonstrate:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use HTML::TokeParser::Simple; use HTML::Tagset; my $html = <<'END_HTML'; <a href="mylink">text1</a> <this is normal text> END_HTML my $p = HTML::TokeParser::Simple->new( \$html ); while ( my $token = $p->get_token ) { next if ! $token->is_text and exists $HTML::Tagset::isKnown{ $token->return_tag }; print $token->return_text; }

Result:

text1
<this is normal text>

Cheers,
Ovid

    ++ for the original. I'm posting an updated example because some changes to the module seem to have borked your example. This is an in place stripper--based on the one you posted--with the newer/working syntax.

    sub strip_html { my $renew = ""; my $p = HTML::TokeParser::Simple->new(\$_[0]); no warnings "uninitialized"; while ( my $token = $p->get_token ) { next if ! $token->is_text and exists $HTML::Tagset::isKnown{ $token->get_tag }; $renew .= $token->as_is; } $_[0] = $renew; }
