in reply to Scraping HTML: orthodoxy and reality

I completely agree with the dose of pragmatism, and thanks for showing both your thought process and the perl code. (<AOL>me too!</AOL>) Two quotes which come to mind to shape the discussion of 'orthodoxy and reality':

  • Rules are meant to be broken, but you have to know the rules before you can break them. -- anon
  • "Orthodoxy means not having to think." -- George Orwell
