( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I tried a bit with HTML::Parser an I hate it because I think it's complicated to use. But parsing HTML with RegEx quickly become more complicated than parsing with HTML::Parser. So here's my snippet and I hope it'll help you:
# This script will extract text which is incuded in <b> use strict; use HTML::Parser; local $/; my $html = <DATA>; my $p = HTML::Parser->new(api_version => 3, start_h => [\&b_start_handler,"tagname,self"] ); $p->parse($html); sub b_start_handler { my ($tagname,$self) = @_; return unless $tagname eq 'b'; $self->handler(text => [], '@{dtext}' ); $self->handler(end => \&b_end_handler,"tagname,self"); } sub b_end_handler { my($tag,$self) = @_; my $text = join("", @{$self->handler("text")}); print "$text\n---\n"; $self->handler("text", undef); $self->handler("start", \&b_start_handler); $self->handler("end", undef); } __DATA__ <P class=para><a name="watch dog"></a><b>watch dog -</b> A big dog that makes sure that you don't do anything that you're not supposed to).</p> <p class=para><a name="WR"></a><b>wooden round </b> A big piece of ro und wood.</p>

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