Re: HTML parsing OR capturing text from a string within tagsby Popcorn Dave (Abbot)
|on Dec 24, 2006 at 06:23 UTC||Need Help??|
Might I suggest a differnt tact than you're taking now?
Long ago, I wrote a newspaper headline grabber for a Perl class using LWP::Simple's get function to grab web pages. I found that easier to use since it can return the whole page to a scalar. Then I used HTML::TokeParser to actually divide up the information and based my collection on only the tokens I actually wanted to save.
If you look at Re: HTML::TokeParser help - parsing headlines there's a quick and dirty token parser that I wrote so that you can see how it splits up an HTML file.
Hope that helps!
