in thread Trivial HTML extractor utility

HTML::SimpleLinkExtor comes with linktractor which does the same thing as linkx.
I had an idea a while back that every Perl module should come with at least one useful demo program. For example, Net::FTP should come with a command-line FTP client program. Text::Template would come with a program that fills a template with values specified on the command line, and prints the results. But the idea never got out of the wishful thinking stage.

It's nice to know that someone wrote a replacement for HTML::LinkExtor that has an interface that (I presume) doesn't suck quite so hard. The amount of code I had to write for linkx was appalling.

Thanks for the pointers.
