  • I did not know that module, but I have been really impressed as I was reading about it in Sean's (excellent) "Perl & LWP".
    So impressed in fact that I stole a couple of its methods and added them to XML::Twig ;--)

    • TreeBuilder is great, as it's close relative XML::TreeBuilder []. However they use both use HTML::Entities as found in HTML::Parser [], and can't deal with some valid utf-8 HTML entites because of underlying problems with Perl (or so I'm told). When 5.8 goes final, I for one will upgrade just to get the maximum out of these great modules.

      Both make good efforts at dealing with dirty HTML and XML, where faster tools die...

      Neither tool is perfect, but both are pretty good, and Sean answers his email
