All the Perl that's Practical to Extract and Report

search engine clue
I asked how long is a renault scenic. Results varied:
- Wolfram Alpha
- Wolfram|Alpha isn't sure what to do with your input.
- True Knowledge
- Sorry, I don't know the answer to that question.
It sounds like this is something True Knowledge doesn't know about yet. Most of what True Knowledge knows has been taught to it by people like you.
What is the length of the object an unspecified member of Renault Scénic, a compact MPV produced by French automaker Renault, a first to be labelled as such in Europe?
- Renault Scénic — Length: 150.5 in (3,823 MM)
According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renault_Scénic
So, I'm impressed by the True Knowledge's question parser. But Google came up with an answer. Ish. Two problems with it though - the Imperial is "correct", but isn't actually the value given on the Wikipedia page they cite (163in), and they have no clue when it comes to metric. Capitalisation matters. Clearly still an American company, rather than global.
