AI Cowboy has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

hey all, I'm a new guy here, but I seem to have run into a problem: I am trying out new ways for a robot I'm making to learn, and I need to figure out how to parse (pars? parse?) a web page so I only get what text I want, for example, a Wikipedia page, I only want the page contents, not the "log in here" or "forgot your password?" things, and I am at a loss. could you help me out?
