  • If that's possible, I would be totally happy to include CSS selectors in HTML::TreeBuilder::XPath (and actually even in XML::XPathEngine). I would love the module to auto-detect which query language is used, but I don't think that's possible, as the syntax overlap.

    • Where does CSS::SAC fit into this discussion? Thanks, Christopher
      • Uh, I used Google Code Search to find the probably duplicated work done in CSS::SAC [], in January 2005.

        Looks like CSS::SAC on CPAN is not updated for a long time (the last update is September 2004) and it's not a bad thing to have a separate, pure perl (and independent of any CPAN module) would not be a bad thing, though.
        • Indeed, I just thought I'd point it out as I have been looking for something in perl as good as ScrAPI as I don't have the cycles to write one and haven't yet (with CSS::SAC) the closest. However if we can build something better I am happy. :-) Christopher
