in thread How to get HTML::Parser to return a line of parsed text


Unless I don't understand your code as well as I'd like (and I might not - a. I'm new at this and b. I'm using the NEW way :), this is what I'm already doing, more or less. The problem is that your script prints the plaintext, and I want the plaintext in a variable - however that can be accomplished.

I tried this:

my $HTMLParser = HTML::Parser->new(text_h => [sub {return shift;}, "te +xt"], default_h => [""]);

But that, of course, just returns the line of HTML, unparsed.

Any further ideas, anyone?
