RE: How do I read a web page from within perl?
Message ID:
Well, this is not only a perl issue. You should get your hands on a paper with HTML specification ( for version 4.01) and do a parser in any language you want (perl , for example).

Its not simply getting a file, because you could just get a frame!
Hope it helps,

Subject: How do I read a web page from within perl?

For example, suppose I want to capture into an array and process the text. How does one do this?

Many thanks,
