wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hello Kind Monks:
I hope you will have time for my dilemma. I need to parse HTML tables.
Like the data found at this link: http://www.databasefootball.com/boxscores/scheduleyear.htm?yr=1985&lg=nfl
So I installed the module HTML::FormatText::WithLinks::AndTables;
Which came really close to doing what I need.
After downloading the source for the above page, I ran it through a bit of code and got the following:
This close to what I need. Problem the URLs are striped out into "footnotes", but they are all . Makes it a bit of a bummer to line up the table contents with the corresponding URL.
Can be done, but I was expecting the footnotes to come through as , , .
Hoping somebody has more experience with this module than I do.
thanks in advance
