My question to you all is can this be done with a fancy regex or is there a module on Cpan that I missed that does this already? If so could you kindly point me in the right direction?
Take a look at this CUFP I posted a
while back for some insight on how to parse HTML
and extract data from it. In it I use HTML::TableContentParser and LWP::UserAgent to pull in HTML extract data from
tables and trigger alarms based on that data.
Similarly you could use HTML::TokeParser to
do much the same sorts of things with your
<blockquote>...</blockquote> HTML syntax
If you have time to do some reading take a look at the
book Web, Graphics, & Perl/TK
published by O'Reilly or Perl & LWP
also published by O'Reilly. The latter being more my
favorite on the subjects at hand.
