  • In the Required Modules section you list Tree::DAG_Node, but in the FAQ just above you write that you use Tree::Simple.

    Is the API stable enough that I can work on am HTML::Parser::Simple::XPath based on XML::XPathEngine [cpan.org]? Or do you want to do this?

    • Hi mir

      My apologies - you are correct. I'm using Tree::Simple.

      I will fix that.

      And yes, the API is definitely stable.

      • Hi mir

        Firstly, I've uploaded V 1.01 to CPAN.

        Secondly, I suggest you work on that other module. I have only the tiniest experience with XPath.

        • OK, I'll have a look at it.

          BTW, using XML::XPathEngine really means monkey-patching the XML/HTML module to make it behave enough like a DOM so the XPath engine can work on it. No XPath knowledge needed.
