This example uses HTML::TokeParser to locate all of the META tags in a document.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use HTML::TokeParser; # get the file name to parse from the command line my $html = shift or die 'Specify a file name'; # access the file with the parser my $p = HTML::TokeParser->new($html) or die $!; # loop through all tokens while (my $r = $p->get_token) { # $r->[0] tells us if it's a Start tag, End tag, Text, Comment # for start tags, $r->[1] tells us the type of tag # only process META start tags next unless $r->[0] eq 'S' && $r->[1] eq 'meta'; print "Found <meta> tag\n"; # $r->[2] is a hash ref containing attributes and values while (my ($k,$v) = each %{$r->[2]}) { print "\t$k = $v\n"; } }

Here's the result from running it against an html file on my system.

$ perl ~/public_html/cvsbook.html Found <meta> tag content = text/html http-equiv = Content-Type Found <meta> tag content = Open Source Development With CVS name = description Found <meta> tag content = makeinfo 4.0 name = generator
--- print map { my ($m)=1<<hex($_)&11?' ':''; $m.=substr('AHJPacehklnorstu',hex($_),1) } split //,'2fde0abe76c36c914586c';
