So, I don't understand why $cell->as_text
gives the data, when Dumper \@cells prints a giant ton of garbage. Also, even though I have specified the table element as
my @tables = $tree->findnodes('//table');
my $table = $tables;
I cant reference this directly. Printing @cells->as_text
fails outright with "can't call method 'as_text' on an undefined value". It is clearly in there as
my @cells = $row->findnodes('td')
.... Anything I do to @cells flat out fails except for looking through with the mentioned
for my $cell (@cells)...
At this junction, I am about to totally give up on this, since I do not understand this at all and have no other way I can parse this otherwise. Since as_text dumps this one entry at a time, I was hoping to process the even elements of @cells as host/ip address and the odd as the previous elements port. But I just don't get this at all.
