in reply to HTM::TreeBuilder, HTML::Element's look_down() method

Pretty simple, $html is not a file, so $tree->parse_file won't work. Use $tree->parse instead.

With some additional error checking it would have even give you a clue: $tree->parse_file($html) or die $!;

    Ah, thanks! And I could just use the same method as in the first example. The examples I looked at didn't use die(). I should have thought of that myself.

    Thanks again!

      If you had done the same as the first example, it should have worked as well, however I would still recommend checking that it was successful.

      my $tree = HTML::TreeBuilder->new_from_content($html) or die $!;
