I have had great success scraping data out of html files using XML::LibXML. This will parse the html into a DOM tree and allow XPath searches for the data. While this may be overkill both for the learning curve or CPU cycles, the code required for coaxing the data out of the files will be pretty simple. You may also end up with a code that is easily changed to solve any similar problem.

Title:
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;

    [LanX]: YAPC Asia was renamed and you'd need to speak Japanese to be able to follow
    [robby_dobby]: LanX: Misery :P
    [robby_dobby]: Or India
    LanX which means I can finally organize YAPC Asia in Sharm el Sheikh ;-)
    [robby_dobby]: I attended a couple conferences (both in India). Left me with a renewed enthusiasm to do more, only to see it disappear in a few days!
    [LanX]: Then come to YAPC EU in Amsterdam ...
    [robby_dobby]: LanX: But that's in Africa! More like YAPC::Africa
    choroba fears Amsterdam might fill him with enthusiasm to do nothing
    [robby_dobby]: Uff, too expensive :-(
    [LanX]: ... I found YAPC EU more entertaining (and international )than YAPC NA
