Personally, I like japhy's answer, but since you are wanting to know how to do it with HTML::Parser, here is yet another way.
use strict; use LWP::Simple; use HTML::Parser; # get the content of the web page my $content = get(""); # instaniate a new parser and let it crunch our data my @lines; my $parser = new MyParser; $parser->parse($content); { package MyParser; use base qw(HTML::Parser); # this method supplies the text, no tags :) sub text { my ($self, $origtext) = @_; print $origtext, "\n"; } }
Unfortunately, this is the OLD way to use HTML::Parser, I haven't learned the new way yet (bad jeffa!). But this should get you going.

UPDATE: If you want to store the contents in a variable, just add

my $stripped_html; # or whatever you wanna call it
Then, inside the text subroutine replace the print line with:
$stripped_html .= $origtext;
I would recommend using an array instead, however:
my @stripped_html; #and inside &text push(@stripped_html, $origtext);
UPDATE: UPDATE: just do what merlyn says :)

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;
