I don't know of there is any module to do that, but if you want to do it manually, you could have a hash in which the keys will be the tag name (probably stripped of the < and >). Parse your file, for each opening tag, increment the value of the hash for that tag. For each closing tag, strip the </ and >, see if the hash exists for that tag and if the value is 0: if the hash does not exist for that tag or the value is zero, add an opening tag; if the value exists and if the value is larger than 0, decrement the hash value for that tag.

EDIT: well it seems there is a module, I had not seen the previous answers when I started to post mine. Forget the above and use the module.

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.
