Thanks for your answer, marto.

The parsing worked.

But how to "capture the output into a new html file"?

I used the following command:

"perl inputfile.html > result.html".

In the result.html file that was generated, I added the stylesheet indicated:

<style type="text/css"> .lineNum { position: absolute; left: 550px; } </style>

But the result.html file didn't show any line numbers.

What may I have done wrong?

P.S. - I've compared the original and the result file, before adding the stylesheet, and they are exactly the same. So the parsing didn't work as it should.

    perl lear.htm > learout.htm

    Adding the style sheet as instructed produced results for me, every 5th line is numbered on the right hand side.

    Update: should you wish line numbers to be displayed at a different frequency the part of the code which deals with this is fairly simple to alter.

    Update 2: Observations from your youtube video:

    • The output file is larger than the input file. This is good, something has changed.
    • The Shakespeare dir is missing a sub directory. When I saved a play it generated:


    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" href="lear_files +/shake.css">


    C:\>dir lear_files Volume in drive C is XP MP 3.01 Volume Serial Number is CE02-00E2 Directory of C:\lear_files 15/02/2013 09:39 <DIR> . 15/02/2013 09:39 <DIR> .. 15/02/2013 09:39 259 shake.css

    If you don't have this css in the location (note that in your file it's looking for /shake.css) it won't render properly on screen. Get this file, save it to your Shakespeare directory.

    Update 3:

      Now it worked.

      I just had to save "complete webpage" instead of "single HTML".

      Thanks a lot, marto!

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
