in reply to Stripping HTML tags efficiently

The (or one) problem is, that you have a variable in your regular expression, what is not neccessary in this case. This slows things always down.

Whats about using qr// to compile the expression or just putting the pattern into the RE directly?

while ($target_data=~m/(<[^>]{1,300}>)/gi)

(You don't have to escape < and > btw.)
