Any one else have trouble with using the Headers method of extracting a table from a page?
I've narrowed it down to this: If two columns have similar headers TableExtract chokes.
My HTML is a follows.
|Date||Date of Incident ||Unit cost|
and when i make an array
@heads = ("Date","Date of Incident","Unit Cost");
$headers = \@heads ;
$te = HTML::TableExtract->new(headers => $headers) ;
I get Bubkiss. If i change the HTML and @heads array to
"Date", "Rate of Incident" , and "Unit Cost" the Regex pattern match
works fine. Also if i change to Date_of_Incident is works.
Unfortunately I don't have control of the generation of the HTML.
I have gotten around the problem by using brute force and Liberal doses of
Ignorance as follows.
@heads = ("myDate", etc...
$page =~ s/Date/myDate/gs ;
Any suggestions? Thanks, The Drone.
