finding text
Message ID:
I use LWP::Simple to get an HTML page. I only want to keep one table row,
and then only the data from the row in seperate fields.

For example:

<title>page 1</title>
<table><tr><td>some text</td></tr><tr><td>a few links</td></tr></table>
<tr><td>some text</td><td>some text</td></tr>
<tr><td>some text</td><td>a few links</td></tr>
<tr><td> THE DATA I WANT</td><td> MORE DATA I WANT</td>

I want to be able to set vars to each of the data pieces on the page I want
to keep.

i know i should do some pattern matching of some sort, but need some sort of
kick start.  This is my first attempt at writting a perl script to parse
through text.
