( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Almost, not quite. Need this:

# strips a specific tag from string sub eliminate_tags { my ($page, $tag) = @_; my $dom = Mojo::DOM->new; foreach my $b ($dom->parse($page)->find($tag)->each) { $b->remove } return $dom; }

So my beef it that: 1) I'd have to be familiar enough with Mojo::Dom to figure out it could do this (I'm not) so I needed to come PerlMonks to find someone like you to help and 2) I have to spend 20 min. wading through monstrous documentation to figure out how to use it for something simple.

So why isn't a specific tool better than a general purpose tool? You're saying a specific tool is inferior because it has more dependencies?

$nysus = $PM . ' ' . $MCF;

in thread Looking for a module that strips an HTML tag and its associated 'TEXT' by nysus

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
