..tried to use HTML::Parser, but it was ended up pretty ugly,

What didn't you like with using HTML::Parser ?

#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use HTML::Parser; my %inside = (); my $tbl = -1; my $col; my $row; my @table = (); my $p = HTML::Parser->new( handlers => { start => [ \&start,'tagname' ], end => [ \&end, 'tagname' ], text => [ \&text, 'text' ], } ); $p->parse_file(\*DATA); # or filename # output for my $t (0..$#table){ print "\nTable $t\n"; for my $r (0..$#{$table[$t]}){ my $line = join "\t",$r,@{$table[$t][$r]}; print "$line\n"; } } sub start { my $tag = shift; $inside{$tag} = 1; if ($tag eq 'table'){ ++$tbl; $row = -1; } elsif ($tag eq 'tr'){ ++$row; $col = -1; } elsif ($tag eq 'th'){ ++$col; $table[$tbl][$row][$col] = ''; # or undef } } sub end { my $tag = shift; $inside{$tag} = 0; } sub text { my $str = shift; if ( $inside{'th'} ){ $table[$tbl][$row][$col] = $str; } } __DATA__ </table></body><body bgcolor="black"><h1> Summary</h1><table border="1"><tr><th>Employee A</th><th>-0.82</th> </tr><tr><th>Employee B</th><th>-5.02</th> </tr><tr><th>Employee C</th><th>19</th> </tr></table></body><body bgcolor="black"><h1> Summary</h1><table border="1"><tr><th>Employee A</th><th></th> </tr><tr><th>Employee B</th><th></th> </tr><tr><th>Employee C</th><th></th>

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.
