in reply to Scraping HTML: orthodoxy and reality

After seeing HP200LX:: on cpan, I suggest you stick it in HP::4600::Status(Scrape)? (or something like HP::Printer::4600 thatwhatever somewhat corresponds to the HP naming convention ;) and suggest to the author of HP200LX:: to rename his HP::200:: yada yada.

As for your notes on html scraping reality, checkout YAPE::HTML, it's regex based.

I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).
