Where to look for source of HTML::Parser

Hello,

I am trying to pinpoint an apparent bug in HTML::Parser. The
encoding of the text seems to change incorrectly if the locale isn't
set properly.

However Parser.pm in the directory
(/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/HTML/)
doesn't seem to contain the "real" parsing statements.

Could you tell me where to look for the "real" code.

Thank You
Himanshu.

HTML::Parser requires HTML::Entities, and it's probably the latter you
want to study.

No it is not the one I am looking for. HTML/Entities.pm merely encodes
and decodes entities.

I am looking for where other things like tags, their attributes etc
are handled and I do not find them in either of these.

Nevertheless, I thank you very much for your reply.

Thank You

Take a look at the beginning of the perl module.
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/sun4-solaris/HTML/Parser.pm
require DynaLoader;
@ISA=qw(DynaLoa der);
HTML::Parser->bootstrap($VER SION);
That means Parser.pm uses Parser.so (and Parser.bs).

/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/sun4-solaris/auto/HTML/Parser/.packlist
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/sun4-solaris/auto/HTML/Parser/Parser.bs
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/sun4-solaris/auto/HTML/Parser/Parser.so

The *.so files are built from *.h and *.c files.
..cpan/build/HTML-Parser-3.34/hctype.h
..cpan/build/HTML-Parser-3.34/hparser.c
..cpan/build/HTML-Parser-3.34/hparser.h
..cpan/build/HTML-Parser-3.34/Parser.bs
..cpan/build/HTML-Parser-3.34/Parser.c
..cpan/build/HTML-Parser-3.34/Parser.o
..cpan/build/HTML-Parser-3.34/Parser.pm
..cpan/build/HTML-Parser-3.34/Parser.xs

I am trying to use HTML::Parser to parse an HTML file, remove all HTML tags (including comments, etc.), replace all ENTITIES (e.g. &amp), and put the result into a variable as a string. I figure HTML::Parser itself can somehow preform the filtering, but how do I get it back as a string? I'd appreciate some sample code if anyone has any. Sorry if this is a real n00b question. Thanks a lot, Mitchua

Hi, I am parsing html documents using the html parser from libxml2, and if the encoding is included in the document it works perfectly but if it is not, I think it does not work well (probably because I am doing something wrong). As it is said in http://xmlsoft.org/encoding.html the parser should detect the encoding. So I tested it putting an utf-8 word in a file and it does not detect it (it generates a wrong string). Example:
