Popcorn Dave has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Fellow monks,

I've googled around for this but perhaps I'm not looking in the right place.

Consider the following snippet:

my $source = get(''); open FH, '>', 'temp.html' || die "Can't open source file\n"; # write t +emp source file to parse print FH $source; close FH; my $stream = HTML::TokeParser->new('temp.html') || die "Couldn't read HTML file $source";
Is there a way that I can eliminate writing the captured data from $source and just pass it directly to the HTML::TokeParser object?

To me it seems like an unnecessary step to be performing, but like I said I tried to google and apparently wasn't hitting the right keywords.

Thanks in advance!

I would love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code
