Thank you for your reply.

To be honest, I have no idea... I know Perl but I don't know where to start.

What I did, was to read the TXT and store it in an array, then I read line by line the HTML and match the sentences without tags.

    Great! And is the code working correctly? (Quietly loads the confetti cannon.)

    Thanks PJ. We owe you so much. Groklaw -- RIP -- 2003 to 2013.

      this is my code as of now.

      #!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; my $html = shift; my $htmlvar; open(my $fh, '<', $html) or die "cannot open file $html"; { chomp; local $/; $htmlvar = <$fh>; } close($fh); my $line = 1; while (<STDIN>){ chomp; if ($htmlvar =~ /$_/ && $htmlvar !~ /<sentence id\"[0-9]*\">$_<\/ +sentence>/){ $htmlvar =~ s/($_)/<sentence id\"$line\">$1<\/sentence>/; $line++ } } print "$htmlvar\n";

        When open fails, get it to tell you why:

        open(my $fh, '<', $html) or die "cannot open file $html: $!";

        Trying to parse HTML like this is more often than not a waste of time.

      Thanks! I am opening the html this way as I don't know the nodes of the files. the created automatically, so this is why I am reading them as text.
