Roger, you are correct about the structure of the code, and that the print statement has to be in the proper place in the loop. I am now saving 99% of what I need into a new file.

I have quite a few loops as I sweep through the HTML to get my file name, and now everything I want gets printed into my file except the bit of text that I pull out to use as a file name for the image. The relevant code is this:

{ push @next, $p->get_token(); if ($next[1][0] eq 'T') { my $title= $next[1][1]; #strip white space from title and get up to four words if ($title =~ /(\w+)\s*(\w+)\s*(\w+)\s*(\w+)/) { my $filetitle = $1 . $2 . $3 . $4; my $newsrc = $filetitle . "\.jpg"; while ( $token=$p->get_token() ) { if ($token->is_start_tag('img') ) { my $src = $token->return_attr->{src}; $token->set_attr('src', $newsrc); } print FILE $token->as_is; } }}}

In keeping with wishes, and genies, and not trying people's patience, I ask my third and last question on this code...Is there a way to put a token back into the stream so that I can keep the file's title text?

UPDATE:Taking a step or two back from this I realized a simple answer to my own question. I just added a print FILE $title; statement in after the regex and it did what I needed. I was so wrapped up in parsing the HTML that I had lost the thought that I could use another approach. Thanks, Monks, as always for your assistance.
