Hi perl monks,
I'm currently trying to extract some information from a website, this is the html segment that I am working on:
<td class="ttl"><a href=# onClick="helpW('h_status.htm');">Status</a><
<td class="nfo">Coming soon. Exp. release 2012, November 13th</td>
the code that I am using is the following to extract the Status onwards:
The results yield nothing, however if I were to change the code to the following:
my (@ASINS2)=$final_page=~m!<td class="nfo">(.+?)</td>!g;
It seems to work, highlighting that the code/regex has an issue trying to grab any html that is separated on new lines, please can someone help? i'm sure its a regex issue but I cant figure it out?!
(all i require is the Coming soon..... segment)
