( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I've had success avoiding script and css data within web pages using HTML::TokeParser as follows:
# this assumes an html file in @ARGV or on STDIN: my $src; { # read the entire HTML input stream as one contiguous string: local $/ = undef; $src = <>; } my $htm = HTML::TokeParser->new( \$src ); my $inscript = 0; my $ignore = join '|', qw/script style cssheader/; while ( my $tkn = $htm->get_token ) { if ( $$tkn[0] eq 'S' and $$tkn[1] =~ /^(?:$ignore)$/ ) { $inscript++; # skip anything having to do with scripts, styl +es or css next; } elsif ( $$tkn[0] eq 'E' and $$tkn[1] =~ /^(?:$ignore)$/ ) { $inscript--; next; } elsif ( $$tkn[0] eq 'T' and ! $inscript ) { # we have text that is not part of scripting or styling, # so do something with this text... } }
This assumes the html input is well formed with respect to script, style and cssheader tags. Note that HTML::TokeParser isn't really any more complicated than HTML::TokeParser::Simple -- you just have to know the structure of the tokens that it returns, so that you can set up handlers for the different types (start tags flagged by  $$tkn[0] eq 'S', end tags by 'E', text data by 'T', etc, with tag name or text content stored in  $$tkn[1]).

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.
