gube has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi, I would like to strip the open quote tag from my html input. If any quote without closing quote i need to strip that out. But, its not stripping. Please suggest how to avoid the unwanted quotes ?
use strict; use warnings; use Time::Piece; use HTML::TagFilter; my $tf = HTML::TagFilter->new(); my $dirty_html = "test252bb<a>gube<"; my $clean_html = $tf->filter($dirty_html); print $clean_html; Current output : test252bb<a>gube&lt; I need : test252bb gube&lt;

    Update: OP changed top level node: Please show what you are getting from the print statement, and also what you would expect to get.

    This change will strip the <a> but it won't replace it with a space-

    my $tf = HTML::TagFilter->new(allow => {});
