in reply to parsing html link

You might try something like that:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use WWW::Mechanize; my $start = "http://www.ebi.ac.uk/thornton-srv/databases/cgi-bin/pdbsum/GetPage.pl +?pdbcode=2j6p&template=ligands.html&l=1.1"; my $m = WWW::Mechanize->new( autocheck => 1 ); $m->get($start); my @links = $m->find_all_links(); print "No link\n" unless @links; for my $link (@links) { next unless $link->text; if ( $link->text =~ /EPE/msx ) { print $link->text, "\n"; } } # Output: # EPE 1148(C) # EPE 1148(D) # EPE-EPE

[james28909]: ok i have a new question ;)
[james28909]: i am not sure how to ask google this either
[james28909]: i am getting the current time on my machine with scalar localtime;
[james28909]: i am scraping a website and retrieving a date stamp of an article.
[james28909]: well time/data stamp of the article
[stevieb]: james28909: what's the problem/question?
[james28909]: it is not an absolute date like "27" or "31". sometimes it is like wednesday or friday
[james28909]: and i need to format those special instances into an absolute date instead of "yesterday"
[stevieb]: ask a question on SoPW, and include at least a half-dozen examples of the input, and at least one example of expected output
