Here's my go using HTML::TokeParser::Simple. Rather a lot of it but I find it easy to write, debug and maintain. There's no need to try and cram everything into one loop, so I've used three. :-)

Note that the output is utf8 because of the  .

#!/usr/local/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use HTML::Entities; use HTML::TokeParser::Simple; my $p = HTML::TokeParser::Simple->new(*DATA); my $span_start; while (my $t = $p->get_token){ $span_start++, last if ( $t->is_start_tag(q{span}) and $t->get_attr(q{class}) and $t->get_attr(q{class}) eq q{classification_indent} ); } die qq{start span not found\n} unless $span_start; my $span_end; while (my $t = $p->get_token){ $span_end++, last if $t->is_end_tag(q{span}); } die qq{close span not found\n} unless $span_end; my ($div_end, $encoded); while (my $t = $p->get_token){ $div_end++, last if $t->is_end_tag(q{div}); $encoded .= $t->as_is if $t->is_text; } die qq{close div not found\n} unless $div_end; die qq{no text found\n} unless $encoded; my $decoded = decode_entities $encoded; # returns utf8 for ($decoded){ s/^\W+//; s/\W+$//; } printf qq{*%s*\n}, $decoded; __DATA__ <span class="classification_indent">Advertiser:</span>&nbsp; Epicor AS </div> </td>

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.
