NAME

HTML::Clean::Human - html syntax cleaner and reformatter for human beings

DESCRIPTION

This takes html like code and takes out the 'non important' stuff. This is NOT an HTML 2 TXT converter. This is is an html syntax filter/reformatter.

My initial temptation was to simply seek a solution such as html to text. But then I realized html code may have links and other ephemera that would be desireable to keep.

What I want it to get rid of; all the stupid html things such as inline font declarations etc.

This code is useful if you edit html, but you have to do it maybe from already existing html that some whacko wysiwyg junk spat out. Run it through this and voila.

So, if you have to 'remake' a stupid website somebody else made.. this is useful. You can just point it to the url and get the code down.

SYNOPSIS

   use HTML::Clean::Human;

   my $c = HTML::Clean::Human->new('http://leocharre.com'); # directly from the web!
   
   my $cleaned = $c->clean;
   
   my $original = $c->html_original;

Or use the provided script htmlclean

   htmlclean http://leocharre.com > cleaned.html
