in reply to Extract HTML Table rows

I have found HTML::TableExtract to be easy to use in simple cases:

use strict; use warnings; use HTML::TableExtract; my $content; { local $/ = undef; # slurp mode $content = <DATA>; } my $te = HTML::TableExtract->new(); $te->parse( $content ); foreach my $ts ( $te->tables() ) { foreach my $row ( $ts->rows() ) { print join ( "\t", @$row ), "\n"; } } __DATA__ <html><head><title>Person Profile</title></head> <center> <font size=5><b>Profile</b></font> <table cellspacing="1" cellpadding="1"> <tr> <td class="rlab">Short Name:</td> <td class="l">John</td> </tr> <tr> <td class="rlab">Long Name:</td> <td class="l">John Abraham</td> </tr> <tr> <td class="rlab">Company:</td> <td class="l">Idea</a></td> </tr> </tr> <tr> <td class="rlab">Currency:</td> <td class="l">EUR</td> </tr> </table> </body></html>
