in thread Parsing HTML files to recover data...

Is it just me, or should this response have been one of the first, rather than the sixth? I mean, go HTML::TableContentParser, HTML::TokeParser, HTML::TreeBuilder, Template::Extract, and all the other modules --- but seriously, as a first go ... ?

# Assuming the page contents are in $_ ($jobname) = m|<span class="jobname">\s*(.*?)\s*</span>|s; ($jobserial) = m|<span class="jobserial">\s*\((.*?)\)\s*</span>|s; ($offices) = m|<span name="offices">\s*(.*?)\s*</span>|s; ($description) = m|<blockquote>\s*(.*?)\s*</blockquote>|s;

Please excuse my surprise.
