in reply to read HTML <title> tag

HTML::Parser is not the easiest way of parsing HTML.

Besides Corion's suggestion about HTML::HeadParser, if you need to parse more than the document's title, you may want to get acquainted with HTML::TokeParser. Here is a way of finding the title:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use HTML::TokeParser; my $p = HTML::TokeParser->new('index.html') or die "can't open\n"; while (my $token = $p->get_token) { if ($token->[0] eq "S" and lc $token->[1] eq 'title') { my $title = $p->get_text() || "<NO TITLE FOUND>"; print "$title\n"; last; } }
