    hello Corion,


    hmm - well i would read out all the labels and values of interest. But besides this way, i would prefer Perl to do the job.

    i have lots of pages to parse - and with t his ammount to parse i need a way that is appopiate - a automatical way of reading the data!

    i think it is a great thing to do it with perl

      So, if you know how to do it as a human, what's keeping you from doing just the same in Perl?

        that said - we assume that the translation of ideas into Perl is just as easy as - hmmm - talking bout reading some rows of text.

        for me as a novice in Perl it is a bit more difficult to create good code - than reading a table


        In other words - i know how i read out a table - but i am not so fammiliar with perl that i can do it with Perl - without the errors you see above.

        The question is: how to avoid the errors!?
