The modules on CPAN do meet my needs, I just can't quite understand them with the limited documentation I have. I don't really care what module it is, as long as it can be used to parse html data, I can work from there.
I just want this in general because I have run into a few scripts I couldn't make because I didn't understand this. For starters I'd like to see an easy method to parse all meta tags from a given url and have them stored in their own variable.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
