in reply to Perl, HTML::TableExtract

I ran into some problems when I used your html. I changed to XHTML:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <html xmlns=""> <head/> <body> <table border="0"> <tbody> <tr valign="top"> <td> <table cellpadding="2" id="RefSNP" width="350"> <tbody> <tr> <th align="center" bgcolor="#ccccff" class="text10" +colspan="2">RefSNP</th> </tr> <tr> <td align="right" bgcolor="#f1f1f1" class="text10"> <strong>Organism:</strong> </td> <td bgcolor="#f1f1f1" class="text10">human (<a href= +" +p;id=9606"><em>Homo sapiens</em></a>)</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </body> </html>
In addition to the advice that hdb and NetWallah gave you, I think that you want to set keep_html to 0:
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use HTML::TableExtract; my $file = '/root/Desktop/html.htm'; my $te = 'HTML::TableExtract'->new( keep_html => 0, attribs => { id => 'RefSNP' }, ); $te->parse_file($file); my $document = do { local $/ = undef; die "could not open ${file}: $!" unless open my $fh, '<', $file; <$fh>; }; $te->parse($document); foreach my $ts ( $te->tables ) { print 'Table(', join( ',', $ts->coords ), ":\n"; foreach my $row ( $ts->rows ) { foreach my $cell (@$row) { next unless $cell; $cell =~ s[</B>&nbsp;][]i; print $cell . "\n"; } } }
