DESCRIPTION

HTML::Content::HTMLTokenizer has one main method, Tokenize, which tokenizes a HTML document into a sequence of 'TAG' and 'WORD' tokens.

  • my $tokenizer = new HTML::Content::HTMLTokenizer($tagMarker,$wordMarker)

    Initializes HTML::Content::HTMLTokenizer.

    $tagMarker - String that will represent tags in the token sequence returned from Tokenize.

    $wordMarker - String that will represent words in the token sequence returned from Tokenize.

  • my (\@WordCount,\@TokenCount,\@Sequence,\%Tokens) = $tokenizer->Tokenize(\$htmldocument);

    $WordCount[$i] is the number of word tokens before or at the ith token in the input HTML document.

    $TagCount[$i] is the number of tag tokens before or at the ith token in the input HTML document.

    $Sequence[$i] is the type of token at the ith spot in the input HTML document. Either $tagMarker or $wordMarker.

    $Tokens{$i} is the word at the ith spot in the input HTML document. This is defined only if there is a word at the ith spot in the document.
