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

Hello,
I have a little problem and I want the most cool/efficient (but still understandable) way of solving it.

I basically have a long string, for example.

<tr><td id=tpa1 nowrap bgcolor=#e5ecf9 height=40 onMouseOver="ss('go to www.mysite.com')" onMouseOut="cs()" class=ch onClick="ga(this,event)"><a id=pa1 href=/pagead/iclk?adurl=http://www.mysite.com&sa=l&ai=BRqXfIssAQqj8EcfeRIXF7OQD2sdO4pmhjQGsqeEKgPEECAAQARgBKAI4AECKFkifOZgBgkugAZDsuf8DyAEB onMouseOver="return ss('go to www.mysite.com')" onMouseOut="cs()"><b>MySite</b> wine merchant</a><font size=-1><br><span class=a>www.mysite2.com</span>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Award winning wines at great prices&nbsp;&nbsp;Money back satisfaction guarantee</font></td><td id=spa1 class=ch bgcolor=#e5ecf9 height=40 align=right valign=top onMouseOver="ss('go to www.mysite2.com')" onMouseOut="cs()" onClick="ga(this,event)"><font size=-1 class=f>Sponsored Links</font></td></tr>

I want the best way to get all the domain names out of it.

So for example in the above I would get, http://www.mysite.com and http://www.mysite2.com as the output.

I have tried doing this with the LinkExtor.pm module from cpan, but i'm not sure if this is really necessary. Can I just do it with a regular expression? Reading the string in and storing all occurences of http://www.somedomain.com ?

Thank you, your advice is as ever very much appreciated.

Tom.

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).
