Comments make HTML extraction even more difficult than it usually is. However, if you're dealing with fairly standard HTML you could use
$page =~ /<!--\w+(.*)\w*-->;/; $commented = $1;
This will grab the string inside the comment; add appropriate qualifiers to the regexp as necessary (or use another on $commented) if you only want to pick certain stuff out.
