Let's say you have some html like this:
<b>I like</b> <i>squirrels!</i>.
You could use this:
$html =~ s/<[^>]*>([^<]*)<\/[^>]*>/$1/gs;
To turn it into this:
I like squirrels.
{QandAEditors note: merlyn points out by way of followup that the above regexp only works for simple HTML, and that in real life HTML, the regexp can't be counted upon to not fail. See the followup for details. }

in thread How can use Perl to strip away some nested HTML markup code, like <SCRIPT> ? by Anonymous Monk

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.
