NAME

HTML::Escape - Extremely fast HTML escaping

SYNOPSIS

    use HTML::Escape qw/escape_html/;

    my $escaped = escape_html("<^o^>");

DESCRIPTION

This modules provides a function which escapes HTML's special characters. It performs a similar function to PHP's htmlspecialchars. It escapes the following characters:

    " & ' < > ` { }

This module uses XS for better performance, but it also provides a pure perl version.

FAQ

Is there also an unescape_html?

No. Unescaping HTML requires a lot of code, and we don't want to do it. Please use HTML::Entities for it.
