HTML::SimpleLinkExtor comes with linktractor which does the same thing as linkx.
I had an idea a while back that every Perl module should come with at least one useful demo program. For example, Net::FTP
should come with a command-line FTP client program. Text::Template
would come with a program that fills a template with values specified on the command line, and prints the results. But the idea never got out of the wishful thinking stage.
It's nice to know that someone wrote a replacement for HTML::LinkExtor that has an interface that (I presume) doesn't suck quite so hard. The amount of code I had to write for linkx was appalling.
Thanks for the pointers.
