Extracting several parameters from webpage

Post by Qshadow » Wed Oct 31, 2012 8:15 pm

I am first time evaluating TextPipe.
I am trying to extract several parameters from webpage,
the parameters in my case are: AuthorName, WorkTitle, PublicationYear, etc... surrounded by some recognizable pattern
I want to pass on webpage and extract all of them to CSV file.
pattern1 AuthorName pattern1end
pattern2 WorkTitle pattern2end

Is this possible with TextPipe?
when i create only one extract filter like this:
I get in result
pattern1 AuthorName pattern1end
But I wanted only the AuthorName!

When i create the extract filters one after another they work like a pipe so the result is empty.
What should I do?
Maybe in my case it is simpler to write independent Perl Script?
