Another module that you might be able to use is Template::Extract. The data would need to be structured fairly consistently for this to work, but it can be an easy way to pull data out of an HTML page. From the perldocs:

This module adds template extraction functionality to the Template toolkit. It can take a rendered document and its template together, and get the original data structure back, effectively reversing the Template::process function.

Here is something to get you started:

use Template::Extract; use Data::Dumper; my $obj = Template::Extract->new; my $template = << '.'; <table>[% FOREACH record %]<td align="Center" bgcolor="[% color %]" wi +dth="14%"><font face="Verdana" color="Black" size="1">[% day %]</font +></td>[% ... %][% END %]</table> . my $document = << '.'; <table><td align="Center" bgcolor="White" width="14%"><font face="Verd +ana" color="Black" size="1">2</font></td> <td align="Center" bgcolor="Red" width="14%"><font face="Verdana" colo +r="Black" size="1">3</font></td></table> . print Data::Dumper::Dumper( $obj->extract($template, $document) );

That prints out the following:

$VAR1 = { 'record' => [ { 'day' => '2', 'color' => 'White' }, { 'day' => '3', 'color' => 'Red' } ] };

Title:
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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
