You can of course take an HTML::Parser to do the work for you. This is the best way.

But if you really want your own regexp, I suggest to use 2 parsings, just to maintain readability. I am sure a real regexp expert can do it in one line, but here is my try.

$x="<html>/something/more words<br/></html>"; $x =~ m|<(\w+)>(.*)</\1>|g; print "first is $1\n"; # You can put the <> around it here $2 =~ m|(/\w+/)(.*)<br/>| ; print "second is $1\n"; print "third is $2\n";
It is up to you to store then in arrays, but at least it gives you a hint.

This is really quick and dirty...

updateIt all depends on how much flexibity you want anyway, you can easily play around with the seperators, etc ...

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
