( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Everyone is so much quicker than me. Oh well, here's my attempt for what it's worth, constructed to handle some (by no means all) HTML-legal variations in the text.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; $/ = ''; my %h; while (<DATA>){ while ( s/((\d+) is good.+?)<(?:hr|HR)>//s ){ my $good = $1; my $key = $2; $good =~ s/\n?\s?<(?:BR|br).?.?>\n?/|/g; my @pot = split /\|/, $good; shift @pot; $h{$key} = [@pot]; } } use Data::Dumper; print Data::Dumper->Dump([\%h],[qw(*h)]); __DATA__ <HR> 1 is good<BR> useless data<BR>useless data<BR> useless data <BR>useless data<BR> <hr> 2 is good<BR> useless data<br> useless data<BR> useless data<br> useless data<BR> <hr> 3 is not good <BR> useless data <br />useless data<br />useless data<BR> useless data<BR> <HR> 4 is good<BR> useless data<BR>useless data<BR> useless data<br>useless data<BR> <HR> 5 is not good <BR> useless data<BR> useless data<BR> useless data<BR> useless data<BR> <HR>

By the way, you asked your question very well and complete with a good data example. It's appreciated.
(better Data::Dumper, thanks to sacked and tilly).

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.
