( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
In my previous comment I mentioned that I could not find a way to pass the attribute empty_element_tags from HTML::TreeBuilder to HTML::Parser. Looking at the source code for HTML::TreeBuilder I found this:
our @ISA = qw(HTML::Element HTML::Parser); # This looks schizoid, I know...
So I've learnt something there! I can call empty_element_tags(1) and now it works.
use HTML::TreeBuilder::XPath; my $file = 'example.html'; my @result; my $tree = HTML::TreeBuilder::XPath->new; $tree->empty_element_tags(1); # calls this on HTML::Parser $tree->parse_file($file); $tree->eof; my @divs = $tree->findnodes('//div[@class="data"]'); for my $div (@divs) { my $text = $div->as_text || ''; $text =~ s/\W//g; push(@result, $div->attr('id') . "=$text"); } print join(', ',@result);
Output:
Zero=, One=Monday, Two=Tuesday, Three=Wednesday, Four=Thursday, Five=F +riday, Six=Saturday, Seven=Sunday

Title:
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.
