My favourite module for parsing HTML is HTML::TreeBuilder::XPath, but it misses out on the first div (id=Zero). It uses HTML::Parser internally but I could not find a way to pass the necessary attribute empty_element_tags=>1 from HTML::TreeBuilder to HTML::Parser.

So here is a fairly verbose version using just HTML::Parser:

use HTML::Parser; my $file = 'example.html'; my ($in_div,$in_wanted_div) = (0,0); my @result; my $parser = HTML::Parser->new( api_version => 3, start_h => [\&start, "tagname, attr"], text_h => [\&text, "dtext"], end_h => [\&end, "tagname"], empty_element_tags => 1, ); $parser->parse_file($file); print join(', ',@result); sub start { my ($tag, $attr) = @_; return unless ($tag eq 'div'); if (exists $attr->{'class'} and $attr->{'class'} eq 'data') { $in_div = 1; $in_wanted_div = 1; push(@result, "$attr->{'id'}="); } else { $in_div++; } } sub text { my ($text) = @_; return unless $in_wanted_div; $text =~ s/\W//g; $result[-1] .= $text; } sub end { my ($tag) = @_; return unless ($tag eq 'div'); $in_div--; $in_wanted_div = 0 if not $in_div; }
Zero=, One=Monday, Two=Tuesday, Three=Wednesday, Four=Thursday, Five=F +riday, Six=Saturday, Seven=Sunday

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
