in thread Fetching table from website using HTML::TableExtract
An alternative to the cell() method in HTML::TableExtract::Table is the space() method. It is largely similar to cell(), except when given coordinates of a cell that was covered due to rowspan or colspan effects, it will return the contents of the cell that was covering that space rather than undef. So if, for example, cell (0,0) had a rowspan of 2 and colspan of 2, cell(1,1) would return undef and space(1,1) would return the same content as cell(0,0) or space(0,0).
