Making glacial progress... I've fixed the failing tests, and as for when to use HTML::ListScraper, the principal use case is parsing search engine results. But documenting a worked-out example would IMHO be misleading - the module just doesn't work well enough for lots of people to start using it right now...

HTML::ListScraper is different from HTML::TokeParser and HTML::TreeBuilder in that it doesn't return the same information (for the same input document); it drops the "irregular" parts, leaving something smaller and hopefully easier to interpret - except that as it stands, it drops rather too much...

Recently I've been reminded that biologists have an interest in sequence matching, and some interesting algorithms I could try, but they don't seem implemented as CPAN modules, so the next step looks like implementing that before trying to incorporate some form of sequence alignment into HTML::ListScraper (a bit like Algorithm::AhoCorasick, which turned out to be completely unnecessary :-) ). And obviously the algorithms will have variations and alternatives I've no idea about - any bioinformatics specialists around here?

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.
