Hello Kind Monks:

I hope you will have time for my dilemma. I need to parse HTML tables.
Like the data found at this link:
So I installed the module HTML::FormatText::WithLinks::AndTables;
Which came really close to doing what I need.
After downloading the source for the above page, I ran it through a bit of code and got the following:
1985 NFL Season Scores, Schedules and Playoffs [1]1986 1985 [2]1984 Week 1 Sunday, September 8 [1]IND 3 at [1]PIT + 45 [1]BOX + + + + + + + 1. /teams/teamyear.htm?tm=IND&lg=NFL&yr=1985 1. /teams/tea +myear.htm?tm=PIT&lg=NFL&yr=1985 1. /boxscores/ +m?dy=8&mth=9&yr=1985&tm=PIT&lg=NFL [1]SDG 14 at [1]BUF + 9 [1]BOX + + + + + + + 1. /teams/teamyear.htm?tm=SDG&lg=NFL&yr=1985 1. /teams/tea +myear.htm?tm=BUF&lg=NFL&yr=1985 1. /boxscores/ +m?dy=8&mth=9&yr=1985&tm=BUF&lg=NFL [1]DEN 16 at [1]LAM + 20 [1]BOX + + + + + + + 1. /teams/teamyear.htm?tm=DEN&lg=NFL&yr=1985 1. /teams/tea +myear.htm?tm=LAM&lg=NFL&yr=1985 1. /boxscores/ +m?dy=8&mth=9&yr=1985&tm=LAM&lg=NFL [1]PHI 0 at [1]NYG + 21 [1]BOX + + + + + + + 1. /teams/teamyear.htm?tm=PHI&lg=NFL&yr=1985 1. /teams/tea +myear.htm?tm=NYG&lg=NFL&yr=1985 1. /boxscores/ +m?dy=8&mth=9&yr=1985&tm=NYG&lg=NFL [1]SLC 27 at [1]CLE + 24 OT [1]BOX + + +

This close to what I need. Problem the URLs are striped out into "footnotes", but they are all [1]. Makes it a bit of a bummer to line up the table contents with the corresponding URL.
Can be done, but I was expecting the footnotes to come through as [1], [2], [3].
Hoping somebody has more experience with this module than I do.

thanks in advance

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
