Extract certain HTML tags

Postby JimC » Tue Oct 02, 2012 6:01 am

I am trying to extract some data from webpages. All of the content I need is contained within two:
<div class="someclass">content</div>
What is best FILTER to extract just these two tage from a file and then proceed with further processing?

Something like an extract HTML/XML pair would be perfect, but I dont see that as an option

Hi Jim,

Just a perl pattern:

Code: Select all

<div class="someclass">(.*)</div>

replace with

Code: Select all


and check 'Extract'.
