in reply to Need help extracting data from web page

In addition to the tips given above, you might also want to familiarize yourself with WWW::Mechanize, that provides a very intuitive way to scrape information from the web.

To get the hang of it, you can use WWW::Mechanize::Shell which allows to to "browse" pages through WWW::Mechanize's functions using an interactive shell.

The documentation to both modules should get you started.

Hope this helps, -gjb-
