Thanks for posting the code.

If you want to use the messages method, you need to parse it first, not clean it.

#!/usr/bin/perl use lib '/home/brian/lib/lib/perl/5.8.4'; use strict; use warnings; use HTML::Tidy; open M, "test.html" or die "$!"; my $html = do { local $/; <M> }; my $tidy = new HTML::Tidy; $tidy->parse( "test", $html ); for my $message ( $tidy->messages ) { print $message->as_string, $/; } __END__ output on a test file: test (1:1) Warning: missing <!DOCTYPE> declaration test (8:9) Warning: missing </form> before <option> test (6:1) Warning: <option> isn't allowed in <body> elements test (6:1) Warning: <input> isn't allowed in <body> elements test (12:33) Warning: inserting implicit <form> test (14:17) Warning: discarding unexpected </option> test (12:33) Warning: <form> lacks "action" attribute

If you want the cleaned output, it is edited in-place, ie: $tidy->clean( $html ); # $html now contains tidied output

Update: the clean method returns the clean html, as Aristotle points out below

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