I'm trying to get individual values from the table and then convert to pdf... Would HTML::TreeBuilder be a good choice to fetch data?

I've minimal experience with it, mainly because each time I pick it up, I've found the interface cumbersome, and unwieldy to use. And it's pretty slow, relatively speaking, although I don't consider that to be an important point.

I find HTML::Parser much easier to use (although you have to invest some time in learning how to use it). If you install it via a package, do yourself a favour and track down the examples directory that is bundled with the distribution. You will probably find an example that you can adapt to the problem at hand.

It's a complex tool that's worthwhile mastering if you have to grovel around in HTML files.

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.
