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

You are not using strict and warnings.

You have loaded HMTL::Parser instead of HTML::Parser but then you do not try to use it.

You are trying to search an undefined variable $text.

You are trying to use captured values but have not any capture groups.

(May not be a problem in your real code but) you are defining a different variable in each part of the if/elsif blocks.

The pattern you are using to match the numbers is a bit odd. Take a look at Regexp::Common.

You are trying to use regular expressions to search for slashes without changing the "/" delimiters. Regexp quote-like operators.

# partial snippet use strict; use warnings; use Regexp::Common; # ... while( chomp(my $text = <$f1>) ) { my ($one, $two, $three); # Also these variable names are not very de +scriptive. if ($text =~ m!Employee\sA</th><th>($RE{num}{real})<!) { $one = $1; } # ...

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.
