(OP)
Hi
I have a little problem(Very big for me)
I want to read in a HTML file into my Perl program.
It starts like
<!--start-->
In my Perl program I can write to this html.
After some writings it will look like this
<!--start-->
<p>aaaaaaaaaa</p>
<p>bbbbbbbbbb</p>
<p>cccccccccc</p>
and so on forever ....almost.
My tricky question is how a can build a small Web(HTML) interface
to remove some or all lines in this HTML file(All lines but not <!--start-->.
I would like that those lines was brought upp in the webbrowser with small buttons on
its side like delete buttons
--------
-Delete-aaaaaaaaaa
--------
--------
-Delete-bbbbbbbbbb
--------
And then if i press The first Delete button the aaaaaaaaa lines will be removed.
Can someone please help me with this or hand over
some great link about this problem.

RE: Heeeelp !

First you have to open your file and read the contents:

open(HTML,"yourfile.html") || die "$!";
@HTML = <HTML>;
close (HTML);
$html = join("\n",@HTML);

Then you have to parse your HTML using regular expressions like this:

$html =~ /<!--start-->((.|\n)*)<!--stop-->/;
$html = $1;

Then $html will contain the contents of your HTML file between the start and stop comments.

BTW, in the future please use a better title for your question than "help".


Sincerely,
