If you used HTML::TreeBuilder::XPath it would be even more powerful.
Not for me; I don't know how to write an xpath expression.
You should really give it a try, it's one of the few fine things coming from the XML world. I once wrote a utility called xmlgrep
, which uses XPath expressions for extracting things from HTML or XML files. For extracting links one would write:
GET http://www.perlmonks.org | xmlgrep -parse-html '//a/@href'
but you can also add additional conditions, for example extract only absolute links:
GET http://www.perlmonks.org | xmlgrep -parse-html '//a/@href[contains
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
