Ok, I've read a few of them and decided to try and take all the html tag names out of a file and print them, however I am running into a few problems. This is what i have.
$content = "<head><body blah></body><foo></foo></head>"; while ($content =~ /<([^(?:\s|>)]+).*>.*<\/\1>/ig) { print $1."\n"; }
This works fine as long as the html tags do not encompass other html tags. In this case they do and it will only find html. Is there something I'm doing wrong? I've tried everything.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
