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[12];
I cant reference this directly. Printing @cells[2]->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)... print $cell->as_text
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.

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.
