in reply to Using HTML::TableExtract

Hi, Okay, coming rather late (about a year) to the discussion...

I can't bear to see a thread go unfinished, especially when I've blatantly copied the original poster's code and edited it into working (the example web site used below is of personal interest to me and my loved ones):

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use LWP::UserAgent; use HTTP::Request; use HTML::TableExtract; my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new(timeout => 10); my $url = ' +func=browse'; my $request = HTTP::Request->new('GET',$url); my $response = $ua->request($request); if ($response->is_success){ my $te = new HTML::TableExtract( headers => ['Request ID','Summary +'] ); $te->parse($response->content); foreach my $ts ($te->table_states) { foreach my $row ($ts->rows) { print (join("\t", @$row)."\n"); } } } else { print "Error: ".$response->status_line."\n"; }
N.B. this node isn't worth ++ing; it would only encourage this kind of behaviour :-)
