8.4. First Code

Because we want links, let's get links, like this:

use strict;
use HTML::TokeParser;
parse_fresh_stream(
  HTML::TokeParser->new('fresh1.html') || die $!
);

sub parse_fresh_stream {
  my($stream) = @_;
  while(my $a_tag = $stream->get_tag('a')) {
    my $text = $stream->get_trimmed_text('/a');
    printf "%s\n  %s\n", $text, $a_tag->[1]{'href'} || '??';
  }
  return;
}

But this outputs:

We got what we wanted (those three "Listen to" links are in there), but it's buried in other stuff. You see, the navigation bar on the left does consist of image links, whose ALT content shows up when we call get_trimmed_text( ) or get_text( ). We also get the mailto: link from the bottom of the navigation bar, the bio links for the guests from the paragraphs describing each segment, and the "Previous Show" and "Next Show" links.
