in reply to Matching enclosed expression

While you will undoubtedly be reminded not to parse html with a regex... Here's something simple, and fragile :)

my $pattern = 'http://www.blah.com/cgi.pl?id=<blah>&blah'; my $matched =($pattern =~ /(\<\w+\>)/,$1); print "$matched";

<blah>

    Well, they _did_ ask for "<idparm>", but maybe they'll say oops they meant "idparm" ?   Let's throw 'em some additional pointers and say m/<([^>]*?)>/ will get what's inside the   '<'  '>'   pair.

    And yes, the "use CGI;  or die" crew hasn't weighed in yet.   (I'm a light-weight and don't count, but ...   Hey, why aren't you using CGI.pm?)

    He was asking to parse a URL, so why would anyone remind him not to parse HTML with a regex?
