( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

It goes something like this:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use HTML::Parser; my $text; my $p = HTML::Parser->new(text_h => [ sub {$text .= shift}, 'dtext']); $p->parse_file('test.html'); print $text;

which, when used on a file like this:

<html> <head> <title>Test</title> </head> <body> <h1>Test Stuff</h1> <p>This is a test</p> <ul> <li>this</li> <li>is a</li> <li>list</li> </ul> </body> </html>

produces the following output:

Test Test Stuff This is a test this is a list

Does that help?

Update: But merlyn's solution is way cooler.

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;
